LOL sorry that was a lame joke! 😛 But whether you prefer coffee or tea both are available in so many varieties from exotic to common and whether you drink your coffee black or mixed with an assortment of flavors & creams or your tea from origins such as Japan, China, India, Brazil or South Africa (to name just a few) surely there is most likely a personal preference to speak of as one is usually favored over the other.
For me personally I prefer green tea as I’ll have some as frequently as 6-7 days out of the week whereas coffee and I only get together maybe perhaps two to three times in an entire month.
If it’s tea it’s my mermaid cup on the right, for coffee it’s my Friends cup on the left…that one’s sort of large though. ^ ^
I recently found this Nacchi coffee set on auctions…..
This set commemorates Nacchi’s “Okaeri” musical and it’s quite elegantly crafted with matching coffee cup & saucer designs. The box and packaging design are also well thought out…
…as the fragile contents are well protected inside by inner cover flaps which keep the cup in place as well as a bird’s nest to cradle it and bubble wrapping underneath which protects the saucer. I’m just trying to figure out if the cloth included is more of a bandana or a perhaps a table cloth….hmm I’m not really sure as it’s quite large when folded out but maybe it’s a fancy napkin instead? ^ ^
I’m actually thinking that the set is much too beautiful to use and of course being a collectible it may spend most of its time in its protective box rather than on a shelf although it may be nice to have displayed…..though someone may then use it one day not knowing of its collectible status. 😮
The designs resemble that of grape vines as they border both the cup & saucer’s edges while Nacchi’s name and her musical’s title are imprinted on the inner lip of the coffee cup. It’s really a sweet collectible…..now if only they sold Hello! Project coffee beans or green tea….. ^ ^
