Wow, those Guinomi Cups are stunning, I have got to have one!

Now I need a matching Cha hei / Pitcher with enough for 3 or 4 Guinomi - but with smaller lattice work holes, so the tea will stay warmer down to the 4th cup.

It has arrived safely, thank you.

Trying it out with Yancha! :D

Now trying it outside with aged Oolong.

It Handles Nicely

The Interior a little too dark to enjoy the colour of the tea

Image

But with sun in the right direction the speckled glaze shows

Image

Epecially when empty

Image

Has a good balance, but I would prefer a little more weight in the base, 'koudai' do you call it. I sometimes pick it up more quickly than I should, because my eyes are telling my brain that it is heavier than it actually is :oops:
