This photo shows a collection of teaware in Cups & Chairs, a tea shop in Philadelphia.

One thing that I like about this photo and this selection of teaware offered for sale is that it shows a diversity of different cultures. There is a traditional Chinese Yixing teapot, used in Gong Fu brewing, and on the bottom, there is a Victorian-style tea set, with its white, frilly-looking cups and saucers and pot, and there are some modern infusers and pieces of modern pottery as well.

I wrote a detailed blog post about this shop on my tea blog.
