Uji Special Edition asamushi. This asa really impresses me with great session after great session ... and it can be "pushed" w/o ill-effect.

Yesterday, brewed up one of those sessions where as it was brewing and I smelled it, I knew it was going to be really special ... and it was.

Really nice combo of the teawares and tea--the rich green tea, snowy white cups, and simple unglazed kyusu. Sounds like the tea was as lovely as it looks.

I really like those cups. They do go well with the tea :)

Thanks for posting so many pictures lately, Chip. It's really nice to see your wonderful collection of tea ware (hard) at work!

Thank you, debunix and Stentor. :mrgreen:

Well ... rerun of Ran. I am running a day behind. Yesterday's post was Saturday, and this one is Sunday's.

Anyway, this is a very enjoyable selection from Xell's Hakinowado (I can finally spell this without looking it up). Very high in "Crave Factor!"

A marvelous session with some Xihu Long Jing from Norbu--sweet, warm, vegetal. Enjoying it from a Petr-Yaki shino shiboridashi and cup.

That's an adorable pot, Chip the Mod :D

May I ask whether it's an antique or a recent one?

Is it close to the kind of Bizen wares or anything else? :)

Enjoying, for the first time, a newly opened package of O-Cha's Uji Asamushi Sencha “Aoi”. Different than the other sencha I've tried, looks lighter but has a soft and sweet touch on the tongue. Makes me think of sushi.
