Very cool Andrzej!

Despite the fact that natsume are for matcha/Japanese Tea Ceremony, I have been breaking the rules lately. I purchased several vintage Makie Natsume from Japan but they sat idle. I deceided, why not use them for sencha just like for matcha. I put the amount of one session of sencha in the natsume which then sits on the tea table as I prepare water, pot, cups, etc.

When the water is the right temp, I simply dump directly from the natsume into the preheated kyusu.

The natsume are happy to be used and I am happy to see them used every day!

Point is, your "natsume?" would also be great for daily sencha! :mrgreen:

Dear Chip and Mrs. Chip (thanks, and nice to meet You)
I very like your point of view. In fact I did not think about my "natsume" as a kind of transmitter of right amount of sencha into a teapot. But I like this idea. Very elegant.
If not for matcha I was thinking rather about one as a caddy for some left tea from a big packages. Into this caddy you can put for example 40g Huangshan Maofeng:)

I have been using some tiny plastic bowls for measuring my morning sencha. This would be much nicer....and an excuse to buy another pretty piece of artisan tea ware.
