There were some slight coffee staining already, but, it is still worth as a showpiece. There is some foreign writing on the tea pot which I could not make it and my mum forgot to ask my brother what it means. But, I am sure it has a nice meaning, something like "Enjoy your Coffee/Tea" maybe?
Thanks, Ma, for bringing it back for me, and thanks, Zan, for buying the tea pot for me. Could I have one tea pot a year throughout your stay in Ireland? *wink*
