Truth be told, it's tiny tea cups like these that make my life bearable. I enjoy green tea on a daily basis. It's my coffee and perhaps a bit of my religion. It's relaxing, nutritious and nice. To add to the enjoyment and benefits of drinkng green tea, it is best served in crafted cups. These are the beautiful find of a clothing designer friend who appreciates the esthetics in most things. These included. I wish they were mine. No secret and I get served organic green tea from Asia each time I have the pleasure of visiting. What a refreshing find. Go vintage. It makes life a bit more delicious.
