Tea for two

I'm not usually into too-cutesy kitchen stuff, but I might have to make an exception for these Tea for Two sets, from Japan-based Shinzi Katoh Design.

I love the cheery feel and how little cupboard space they take up - perfect for city apartments! (Like the tiiiiny one we had in Central London:)).

I have to say that these are the cutest dang things that I have ever seen. Guess what's running through my head now?

I'm a little teapot♪
Short and stout
Here is my handle♫
Here is my spout
When I get all steamed up,
Hear me shout,
Tip me over and pour me out!♪

Awww, those are so adorable. I really want the little elephant one - so cute!
And I drink SO much tea - I mean like 10 cups a day or something - so I can never have too many tea wares.

I do not like too cutesy kitchen items either, but have to agree with you here, in that I would probably change my mind for these. They really are adorable!

Nice find!

Pretty Pink Penguin said...

As soon as I spotted those pots I fell in love, no doubt as they were designed by Japanese(I'm too). I love the one with frog.

Amber Blue Bird said...

These are cool. I'm digging the piggy tea pot. I want some tea right now.

Café Bellini said...

These really are adorable!

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Oh my gosh, I love the elephant one!! It is fantastic. I love tea so I am always sucked in by tea gear.

And in response to your comment, yes I am a grad student too. It is my "hobby" outside of my job. *sigh* one of these days I'll figure out what I want to be when I grow up!

Abi said...

These are the cutest! Makes the art of tea-making that much more fun! (perhaps 'art' is going to far?)

MarchMusings said...

I see what you mean-umm.. cute but functional gets my vote. 'Black Swan' promises to be a good one to watch. Natalie will surely do justice to the role.

Mary R said...

Totally cute tea cups! I love how they all have covers so the tea stays warm. As you can imagine, there are so many cute ones to buy in Japan....

Zabrinah said...

These are so amazing. I really love them so much. I want these in my house!
