My current 8 favorite Tea accessories

I have been thinking of spring more than ever since 50% of the US is frozen and sick of the cold already. Who says spring says renewal, flowers and longer days. For everyone celebrating the Chinese New Year of the Goat, they know it’s the time of the year to think of renewal. In that spirit, I am thinking of Spring Flush and new Tea Accessories.

I have been browsing the web for new additions to my tea lifestyle. Check them out, I think they are pretty neat.

This mug is double chambered to ensure that the tea stays warm while the outer surface does not get hot to hold. It comes with a stainless steel infuser.

Always loved Raku Bowls, they have connection with Wabi-sabi I believe. They are great for matcha.

I was looking for a lovely Yixing Clay teapot for my Puerh teas. The other ones I have, are either for Green teas or Oolongs. This is is just so lovely, I love the flower, I believe it’s a Peony, my favorite kind.

    • What I really like about the raku bowls is the fact they are all unique pieces. You can find similar ones, but your bowl will be a one time piece. I fell in love with raku, years ago, when as a teenager I spent 2 weeks in the Alps, with a couple living off Raku Ceramics. They would sell it during summer and the rest of the year they lived humbly in the isolated mountains. Since then, I had an affection for these pieces. 🙂
