OMG that's sweet.
How does it brew? any noticeable difference to the standard?
I'm still so tempted but still sitting tight for the red.
Touch wood I've been getting stuff sent via SAL now from Japan. Its quicker then express due to express sitting in customs for up to 10 days and 9 times out of 10 there's no charges. Usually it takes 5 working. My Tachi Masaki came like that
This is just for the UK though.
Its the handling fee which annoys me the most. 1. because its against the law to hold on too post due to dept yet they do anyway
2. I cannot pay myself, nor have I entered in to a contract for someone else to pay on my behalf. Yet I have to pay a £8-£13 handling fee.
Anyway its a stunning pot and the cost will soon be forgotten. The swirl on the lid from the top is breathtaking. Your pictures make it look even more amazing then the AN ones.
Many thanks for sharing those.
