Depending on how I look at that pattern, I see Scandinavia, mainland Southeast Asia and Indonesia.
I just got this very simple kyusu. My first right handed kyusu and it's actually quite usable, even for a lefty. Just tried some Vietnamese high mountain green tea (from older assamica trees...yummy) and the clay did a lovely job of bringing out the aroma. I bought this specifically because I was curious about the clay's performance, and I'm pleasantly surprised for sure. Caught a sale, so I got it for a pretty fair price I feel.http://www.tokyo-matcha-selection.com/c ... amic-mesh/
