Akira Satake makes beautiful guinomi, yunomi and chawan; https://akirasatake.com/home

Also, antique Canton tea bowls from the 1800s and very early 1900s can be found on eBay, they tend to be around 150-200ml, great glaze, thin porcelain and lyrical drawings. This one linked is 1880s, identified by rim edge diagonal line work, my favorite period, perfect weight and glaze.

Another thought ask Asako Isobe via Facebook. She is a member of Los Angeles Tea Club, you can Messenger her with specific Clear details and request.

Browse around local antique resale stores, you might find something. Also, no need to be in a rush, I find it takes time to get quality pieces that match what you might be looking for to keep for a lifetime.

An idea I have been toying with recently is just to use a gaibei as a cup, in the end that is what gaibei means – a cup with a lid.

Quite common in Wuyishan with family members is to grab the bottom of a gaiwan and fill it up.
