This is my much-loved, well-used, sort of ugly, always-a-little-dirty tea cup. I drink tea all day from it every day---black tea, green tea, herb teas, etc. The handle broke and LoveHubbie glued it back together. It's still hanging in there after many years. I think it was a free gift from Amazon in the late 1990's when they were just getting started to say thank you to me for
"biblioholism: the habitual longing to purchase, read, store, admire, and consume books in excess."It is sacred, special, and soothing to me. I dearly enjoy and am grateful for the delight of tea-drinking.
