I've got some larger ones (approx. 100-150 ml) in the works with different profiles that I'll try to post later on. I've been making them a little bit lower/wider/larger in my most recent attempts. This one holds 75 ml at the point where the lid meets the interior of the cup. Thanks for looking and as always feedback is welcomed
PS I've been steep'n up some Da Hong Pao from out own IPT's shop in one of the seconds. It seems to taste a lot better and different brewed in my stoneware rather then the a commercially made gaiwan. What is that? Is it a heat retention thing, does shape of the interior have that much influence, or is it just my imagination?
