Very nice! I actually prefer the lower profile for both looks and functionality.

Today, while we were settling in for a nap, there was a knock at the door, and a postman delivered my express package....tried to get back to the nap, intending to open it later, but couldn't wait. Miss Emily supervised at every step:

Emily was inspecting the blue cup, hoping for water, as she prefers water to tea. She put her paw in it to check for that, but sadly, there was none to be found.

These cups will not have the fortune to enjoy matcha anytime soon, however, because I have given up on it for now.
