How is drinking tea from a cup and saucer a good Catholic custom? It all originated in pagan Asia and Protestant England. My medieval European Catholic ancestors weren't swilling tea and they didn't use saucers. I stand by my bourgeois comment. Marx wasn't wrong about everything.

In this case drinking coffee is evil too, since the moslems started this habit and it came to europe via the ottomans.

this article is gayer than Elton John dressed in drag impersonating Barbra Streisand

If you can call my article "gay", surely you won't be offended if I call you a marrano?

Naturally, your mother could tell from the get-go the Jewish perfidy in you that Markus has now disclosed.

- The gaiwan is Chinese.
 - Japanese matcha tea is served in bowls, not cups.
 - Japanese sencha tea, on the other hand, can be served in cups with saucers.

I have a traditional Japanese sencha set that I bought from Japan on ebay which came with matching cups and bronze saucers. Sencha cups don't always come with saucers, but these did.

Thank you.  My set would be for sencha tea, then.  It does have a slatted bamboo board on which the pot and cups are (presumably) placed, so the functional quality of a saucer at least is retained, even though there are no saucers.  Whether this is common or traditional to sencha tea sets, I do not know.

I should say that not all European tea sets are ugly.  My mother once received a Hungarian tea set as a gift, and it has very nice and intricate geometric patterns: crimson & gold on white.  My own cups and saucers are monochromatic, plain white.  Outside of a lobotomy, I don't think I could ever come to truly appreciate the floral designs on European sets.  I drink green tea throughout the day, but in the evening after dinner I like to drink Earl Grey or chai tea.  Chai is probably my favorite tea.  I make it with a 1:1 ratio of chai tea to vanilla soy milk.  The Indian subcontinent is the source of most of my gustatory pleasures.
Your tastes brought to my mind a tea I thought you might like, Prince of Wales, made by Twinings.  You may have heard of it.  It is a black tea, but the flavor is subtle.

Gracias for the recommendation.  I have never had that, but Twinings has an Irish Breakfast blend that I like, so perhaps I'll try their Prince of Wales.

Their Irish Breakfast tea was the only tea I would drink for years. It's superb.
