Lin's Ceramics

This is May from Lin's Ceramics in Taiwan.
I met May when I traveled to the World Tea Expo a couple weeks ago.
It is always fun to put a smiling face to someone you have communicated with by email.
This year, beside the gorgeous tea ceramics, she was selling some lovely oolong teas.
I came home with a Honey Oolong which I am certainly enjoying.

But ceramics is what I wanted to see and they didn't disappoint.
I love all that they make and some day would like to visit them in Taiwan.
The soft green of the set above was just beautiful.
Have you ever dreamed of having a beautiful small tea set.
When people see the little teapot; they often think they are for children.
These little sets, however, are worthy of you using to make your tea.
They usually hold a lovely Oolong, which can be re-steeped several times.
What a treat it would be to share a small pot of Oolong tea with a friend
in a small teapot and cups.

Double click on the picture of May and you will see other lovely tea sets and utensils.
I would love to carry Lin's Ceramics on my website,
and maybe someday I will.  I will let you know if that happens.

Those Lin Ceramics are very pretty. I like the glaze and the pretty color. That is a nice bamboo tray with its own cup holder too.

You know, as I was reading this post, I thought, She has a passion for tea. She should open up a teashop. And so you have! Took me a while to discover that, huh? *grin* It's always a pleasure to discover someone who is doing something that they love. And the World Tea Expo sounds like it would have been a fascinating experience. I want to hear more about it.

Wishing you and your family a most lovely 4th of July!

I was just dropping in to wish you and yours the happiest Independence Day. May your day be full! May you enjoy laughter shared with family, great food shared with friends, fireworks to make you gasp, a lump in your throat at the anthem, and a full and grateful heart at all we have been given. Happy Fourth of July, my friend!

I adore that tea set. The simplicity of form is really beautiful, and I loev the chubbiness of it. If you end up with any of Lin's Ceramics, please do let me know -- I'd love to get one of those at home.

What great pieces! I just got through reading a new tea book which advocates using smaller vessels for steeping (and serving) tea, so these would be perfect for that. Yes, I'd love to know if you decide to carry these!
