David and Iannon your Tetsuaki Nakao are incredible, in the future I have to buy one of this, but they are very very expensive.

How does that delicate blue glaze transform the strong red-orange clay into granite with a tracery of blue over it?

I have that same set of cups I bought years ago. They are cheap, but also very pretty. I still use them from time to time. I like them a lot.

Here is a new acquisition. It is a pair of late Qing Dynasty Gaiwan's. They hold 250cc each. They have the bird and flowers pattern which I am quite fond of. I have quite a few different pieces of tea ware with this pattern.

Nice teapot, and very nice cups too.

Hope your shiboridashi arrives soon--although it is not made in Hagi, it's got a wonderful Hagi-like feeling to it. And my cup is Hagi, from coarse Hagi clay--although if I didn't turn it over and see the unglazed foot, I'd swear someone carved it from a chunk of Sierra Nevada granite.

Yes. I have cups that I think were made for sake, but use for tea. I've read of people having to work hard to clean the sake smell out of used sake cups, but that's not a problem with new cups.

The tea doesn't know what they were made for, and I appreciate having cups in a variety of sizes and styles.

I have a number of Japanese sake cups that I use for gongfu cha. Their size is perfect and they are different than anything you can find in China, so they are great.

My chinatown tea shop has a wide variety of styles in tea cups of about 50-60mL, many large cups and mugs of 200-250+ mL, including infuser mugs, and a handful of 15-20mL cups. There's a big gap between the tiny cups (which I use for my multiple-tea tastings), and the large mugs for bulk-brewed stuff that I've filled with Japanese, US, Czech, and Swiss-made cups.

I remember I asked the same question too some time ago, and Chip confirmed that it is not only ok but completely normal to use sake cups / guinomis for tea :mrgreen:

I use my sake cups for gyokuro and sometimes for expensive sencha (normal sencha will qualify for a bigger cup), as well as for oolong and occasionally even for pu-erh.

Also I'm very fond of sake cups since they are a relatively inexpensive and not too space-consuming way to build a beautiful hagi collection :lol:
