There's a tanuki in my teacup!

If you ever saw the Studio Ghibli film Pom Poko, you'll know that a tanuki is a Japanese raccoon dog and that they're jolly and mischievous creatures.

This cute tanuki has decided to take a bath in your teacup. But don't worry, your tea will taste just fine. He's hiding delicious, roasted hojicha inside.

His leaf-shaped tag only adds to his cuteness.

"Ahh, what a nice bath. I feel so relaxed.." His mood is contagious, don't you think?

This one is for bird-lovers

One of the most adorable birds of Japan, the シマエナガ Shima Enaga is a subspecies of the long-tailed bushtit (Aegithalos caudatus japonicus) only found in Hokkaido. Normally the species has black eyebrows in adulthood, but the Shima Enaga has adapted to the snowy white environment by losing its dark coloration, giving them pure white faces. It's no wonder they're called "winter fairies" by the locals.

Look at those cute beady eyes...The tea they contain is Camellia's Tea House Welcome Tea, a soothing blend of rose hips, apple pieces, lemon peel, and orange peel.
