My mother and I decided to go splits on a set of four since neither of us really needed more than two each, they certainly add a level of whimsy to our tea gear collections. I have decided to lovingly call them ‘fairy cups’ because they look magical and they are so delicate that it is not at all hard to imagine fairies or even Tolkienian elves sipping from them.
They are very tiny, perfect for a really rare tea where you only have a small amount or if you are doing a ton of steeps and don’t want to end up sloshing when you move. These are not everyday cups, very much so a special occasion or just ogling the design kind of cup.
The price was very reasonable for the set of four, probably the best price for this style cup that I have found (and I browsed around a lot). My only complaint is I am so afraid of breaking them, my hands are arthritic so I tend to drop things a lot so HOPEFULLY I have not doomed these cups to a nasty floor smashing by owning them.
