jmreeves Nice kyusu! Very similar to my favorite one.

Hint: you can't post directly from the lightbox. In order to display properly all images must end with a photo suffix ie; jpeg, bmp, gif, etc.

So go to "view all sizes" select Medium and copy the URL and paste. Use the image brackets rather than URL to post.

Thanks everybody! Good tips on photoposting.
Chip, I was brewing Jasmine Chun Hao. I am still working out its optimal setting. The kyusu is 355mL but I fill it to ~295mL and use ~2tsp. 80 C 2min then rolling boil ~45sec.

Hung er on the wall and stuffed it with

Petr Novak cups
All glazed on the interior with some applied glaze on rim and natural ash deposits on the exterior giving a textured feel in the hand but easy on the lips. Surprisingly thin walled.

Love the glaze on this--it almost looks like bronze verdigris!
