Tea cup land

On a recent trip to Holland I visited a town called Veere, in Zeeland, which on first inspection looks like a picturesque coastal town with cobbled streets, yachts and old buildings. Yet wondering around the shops I discovered I was actually in teacup heaven. 

Every store I went  into whether it was down a secret passageway or on the main high street seemed to sell the prettiest range of tea cups imaginable. 

 All the stores had their own unique way of displaying the teacups, it was like wondering into a sweet shop and being amazed by all the delightful colours and not knowing where to start.
 You can never go wrong with spots.
 And even if you don't like florals, seeing so many types looked very appealing.
 And of course there were attractive teapots to match.

 And even tea cloths...

Yet what was utterly strange was that I drunk approx 12 cups of tea in different cafes/ restaurants over the weekend and every single one was served in a transparent glass mug.....I didn't see a single teacup in sight, even when I order tea in Veere!  
How most peculiar......
