When you shop online to buy teacups, have in mind what you want to find. Will that be individual teacups or a set? A set usually comprises 4-6 teacups and saucers, a milk jug, sugar container, and spoons. It really does depend on the tea you are drinking and with whom!
We have a couple of tips to consider when searching:
What tea are you going to drink? If you like to partake of green tea, you might want to add some small tea cups, Asian style.
If you enjoy blossom tea like the Sakura or Cherry Blossom tea, think about wide-rimmed glass tea cups, so you can enjoy watching the blossom unfurl.
Traditional Chinese teas are often brewed at a specific temperature; this is why the tea cup handle is missing! Being able to feel the temperature by holding the cup in their hands is all part of the process of drinking the tea.
Think about how the tea cups will look in your home, and which will work best in the setting you will be drinking your tea.
Do you want porcelain tea cups, ceramic or glass?
