The yunomi bears the Matsuba device, twin pine needles joined in one fascicle, symbol of romantic unity*, recalling the intense romance of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly ... Un bel dì vedremo.

That is a beautiful cup Sal, is it from Hibiki-an?
No fathers day celebrations for me but I am off on my stag do early tommorow morning to Amsterdam until Wednesday, although it won't be the most traditional stag party as I've recently drastically cut down on my alcohol consumption. I'm planning on having an absolutely fantastic time however, anybody know of any good places to get tea?
No tea for me as of yet but will probably have some Miyabi soon, I think this is the best Shincha I've had so far this year!
