Got my kyusu today...wow. My sencha tastes so much better than it did in my easy gaiwan (spout and handle). I'm absolutely in love...taking it to Mumbai with me tomorrow! Funny, I was there earlier this year and I was all about the oolong; now all I drink is Chinese and Japanese greens!

Living in HK, I have access to better, cheaper Chinese tea than you are likely to find in the west--it'd be shame for me not to drink it! ;) Ironically it's easier to buy good Indian tea overseas than it is in India (I'll be there in a little over 24 hours)!

Yes! The glaze is present and shines on top of the already rustic appearance. :mrgreen:
