Teacup Series #5: with gratitude

It’s always nice to get new tea wares, and it’s even better when they come as gifts! Zwiebelmuster was the very first complete tea set (even though only the cup and strainer are shown here) I got from my mother, and it was a nice to addition to our kitchen since my mother already owned bunch of bowls and plates from them.. Noritake’s Cutie Rose was also a gift from my mother, and it came with another cup and plates in two different sizes. Mariage Frere’s glass teapot was a birthday gift from about 6 years ago, but I never gathered enough courage to actually use it… ^^; It looks so delicate and super hard to clean afterwards! (plus it’s gigantic for just one person..)
