I placed a small order with Dragon Tea House tonight. I have three plain white gaiwan and I’m getting rid of two of them (as I just don’t have the room) and replacing it with a new dragon themed one, as well as keeping one white one as a back up.
Here is a picture of my new set:
I also got some tea:

Courtney and I were able to get in our Red Leaf Tea order literally seconds before the sale ran out. Yay! Now we have Strawberries & Cream Matcha, Bananas & Cream Matcha, Peanut Butter Pie Matcha, and Caramel Popcorn Matcha on the way!!
While I’m ill I thought a small teapot purchase would cheer me up, so I got this. =^_^=

Honey cat broke a few of my teaware items :( She broke a gaiwan and two Japanese cups. The gaiwan I didn’t mind as it was plain white and I had three of those anyway, but the Japanese cups were my first and I loved them. Still she didn’t mean it, she’s old and her balance isn’t what it used to be. Bless her.
So I searched over the weekend and finally made my decision on replacements:
I got the last of this bamboo design (which was on sale)
And two of these beautiful bowls
Total was $57 which was around £35.50 including the shipping from Japan.
We had a friend over yesterday who was getting over an illness. I served her some Teavivre’s superfine grade Ali Shan oolong tea which she really enjoyed, so I ordered her a 100 gram bag today, and got some Oriental Beauty for myself.
I made my first order with Yunomi.us just now. I wanted to do it on the first of the month so I could get one of the limited “press sample” packages they give out. So here’s what I got:
- NaturaliTea #06: Organic Genmaicha (sample size)
- Obubu Tea Sampler Set: 4 Spring Sencha Teas
- Kurihara Tea #05: Gyokuro Tea Sampler Set
- Monoucha Genmaicha from Ishinomaki, Miyagi (sample size)
- Obubu Tea Sampler Set: 4 Roasts of Houjicha
- Kesennuma Kuwacha Sencha: Mulberry Leaf Tea (free sample)
- Yamane-en: Hokkaido Dattan Sobacha (free press sample)
- Yamane-en: Aomori Dattan Sobacha (free press sample)
I’m really looking forward to trying these, as I think my palate leans towards Japanese greens over Chinese ones.
oh….Harney is having a free shipping deal, which gets me every time. Just stocked up on Malachi McCormick and ordered a bunch of samples of their black blends so that I can continue the search for the perfect milk & sugar companion….
