As a tea drinker, and I am sure this is true for you, I adore teaware, from the chasen to the yixing teapot. Everyone has their favorites! This series showcases the favorite 3 of folks in the tea blogging community. Today's faves are from Jee Choe of Oh, How Civilized.
Mariage Frères Tea Canister
On the last two trips to Paris, I picked up tea canisters from Mariage Frères. They're so pretty and the colors are gorgeous, like this mint green one. This one is filled with Marco Polo, one of the best selling Mariage Frères blends. [Mariage Frères]
I got this Bamboo Matcha Ladle from Ippodo, at their shop in Midtown East. This delicate ladle scoops out the perfect portion of matcha and I use it almost every day. [Ippodo Tea NY]
When I got the ladle at Ippodo, I got this 80-tip Bamboo Whisk with it. This is my second one since the first got a little beaten up from not using it properly. I was too aggressively whisking the matcha against the bottom of the bowl -- something you shouldn't do, which I learned the hard way.
