One of the most rewarding things I have received through my study of tea are the connections and friendships I have built.
Pictured is a set of cups that was given to me by a shop owner in Taiwan. A group of friends and I stumbled into his shop while wondering down a passage way. We spent a lot of time in his shop looking around, asking a bunch of questions and taking pictures. After a little while he offered to brew some tea for us. Of course we accepted! We sat at his desk drinking tea with him and explaining who we were and what we were doing. Towards the end of tea he decided to give each one of us a cup from beneath his desk. These are those cups.
