Tea travels made easy

One of my best tea purchases ever!

I recently discovered this great tea set designed for anyone who can't live without their loose leaf while on-the-go! Purchased from a small tea shop in Chinatown, Singapore, the set contains a small gaiwan, pitcher and five cups that all nicely fit into a soft, green, zip-up case. It easily fit into my carry-on and made it possible for me to enjoy plenty of loose leaf tea while in London. I've seen similar sets being sold here in the UK on Etsy and ebay but in terms of cost, it's of course much cheaper if you can buy something like this in Asia - I only paid $13 Singaporean dollars for mine!
