Cherry Blossom Teaset Collection (Sakura)

Before I begin with my story, let me introduce something that has to do with my posting today.

A cherry blossom is the name for the flower of cherry trees known as Sakura (Japanese kanji : 桜 or 櫻; hiragana: さくら) in Japanese. In English, the word "sakura" is equivalent to the Japanese flowering cherry. Cherry fruit (known in Japanese as sakuranbo) comes from another species of tree. Cherry Blossoms are indigenous to many Asian states including Japan, Korea, China, and India. Japan has a wide variety of cherry blossoms (sakura); well over 200 cultivars can be found there.

I have a habit and love to collect old dishes especially teaset and teacups and of course roses are the most favourite flowers. Do I like or love cherry blossom?? I do so but sad to say I didnt get the chance to see it in real when visiting Korea last year.

Today I am going to share 2 set of teacups which consist of 13 teacups with 3 different shapes. But I have only 1 teapot to share by all those. I have never used this tea set before. I guessed I will do so in the future. I need to be careful when using as its quite difficult to find a substitute once its broken.

Many thanks for visiting me and feel free to stop by for more wonderful Pink Saturday posts.


  1. kak gee...cantik bunga tea set tu!!!

  2. Oh Gee...I love cherry blossums and we have a very pink city here in Vancouver, Canada in spring with all the Japanese and Chinese Cherry trees. Even a festival for them! I just recently bought a cup and saucer at an antique show with cherry blossums on it. I will try and remember to take a photo of it for next will love it! Happy Pink Saturday!

  16. Your tea set is gorgeous. Before we retired we lived on the east coast not far from a place called Branch Brook Park. Each spring there was a display of Japanese cherry trees that rivaled that in Washington DC. It is a gorgeous tree when it is in bloom. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
