Shopping at old teashops in Hong Kong is always fun. You find things unexpected, like this one
What is it, you may ask? The date says 1978, April 27th. Sadly, it’s not old tea, but nevertheless, it’s well worth the money — it’s a tea tray.
It’s brand spanking new, but old at the same time, especially since these are no longer made and so are quite hard to find in good condition, never mind a brand new one. Most old shops have one or two that they use regularly, but no more. This is a smaller one, big enough for four cups and a shuiping, but not a lot of room left after that. I’ve always wanted one of these, and now have found one. Too bad there’s a one-per-customer limit, because otherwise I’ll buy them all.
