Ubacat had mentioned on a previous thread back in September that it would be nice to see the teaware I got from Ali Express when it came in. It’s finally in. That should tell you something about the shipping – it takes a long time but it was free. :)
I got these from different sellers. I had originally ordered a curio shelf as well, but it ended up being out of stock and the transaction was cancelled. The other thing I got was a celadon fishy cha hai that I gave to a friend. :) All transactions were smooth and without problem. I haven’t tried out the pot yet, so I don’t have a feel for whether or not is is an actual yixing but I don’t really mind if it isn’t. I didn’t pay much for it and it’s got a bat! I’m kind of easy to please sometimes. :)
Bat pot!! It is so cool!!! I really like it, the peach lid is a really nice touch.
I have heard from an army of tea frogs that the friend absolutely adores the celadon fishy cha hai.
I need to get back onto Aliexpress again, maybe a post-holidays shopping spree. Not that I really need more tea gear…ok I totally do :P
The teaware set look really beautiful. Great for tea time.
Thanks, gang. I should have another set to post in about a month, though from Umiteasets.com rather than AliExpress. They have this bad habit of offering you discounts and stuff if they are online when you are browsing. I was hoping they had cups and a gaiwan to match a cha hai I bought from them but wasn’t seeing anything. Long story short, they have a set and offered a discount so I kind of didn’t have a choice but to buy it.
I may have gone from having a tea problem to having a teaware problem. :) They are just so tiny and each piece is u
Thanks, gang. I should have another set to post in a month or so but from Umiteasets.com rather than AliExpress. Long story short, they offer discounts and stuff if they catch you browsing and not actually checking out. :) I may have gone from having a tea problem to having a teaware problem.
But the Eastern stuff is just so darn cute and each piece seems so inexpensive…
