Excellent texture, looks like leaves from the bottom of the packet!

There is a very pensive feel to the coffee cup...Or tea cup:-)?

Thanks for all the comments. I have to come clean. I sacrificed a tea bag and sprinkled the tea over the picture to get the texture I wanted. I do hope that hasn't offended anyone.
The cup is one found in a charity shop years back, with some Japanese writing on it. Not a clue what it means. It mostly sits in a cupboard waiting for guests, gathering dust.

Hi.
I'd like to see a tad more of the writing on the cup. It makes the picture mysterious. Nice work.

Nice one. So manish and straight up. No doilys here!

Smooch,
