Puerh cups! Black tea cups!

My yunomi do sometimes let me down with the very hot teas, and I break down and grab the handled cups to preserve my fingers....

where do people go to look/buy Korean tea ware? the only place that comes to mind is Hankook, which is local to me in LA I think.

Yes, they are quite precocious! :mrgreen: Some are quite small, as small as 2 ounces, while others hold up to 4.

That's one heck of an elegant set.

And just because my set has this problem, I'm curious: how does the volume of that cup match the volume of the brewing vessel?

Thanks Victoria and Debunix :D The volume is 1 to 1, a very comfortable match. The pic shown the brew level. The link is some of their products:

Hi Tim,

I'm just curious about where your tetsubin is sitting on: what is that thing placed inside your brazier?

I have a Ryoro which is a little too small for mine and I have to keep something below the kettle to let air flow out, otherwise my charcoals extinguish.

Thanks,
Andrea
