I've been enjoying some Kasuga Zairai Sencha from my 200ml Kobiwako kyusu in a little beauty of a cup, from a set of three, by Andrzej Bero today.
And a blown out phone picture up close. Ahhh, those ledges on the Bero cup. Tactile wonder!
William, I've been enjoying seeing your Kobiwako getting some good use!
Thanks, your kobi
kyusu is lovely too!
What do you think of the Kasuga Zairai Sencha? Mine is on the way to Italy ..
I've been enjoying it, I can't really say more than that. Unfortunately I've had about 6 months to a year between every sencha (fuka and regular) I've bought since I had my first cuppa a few years ago. My tastebuds are still in development when it comes to sencha so it's hard to compare from memory. I do believe I'm coming to the conclusion that my main preference is fuka (compared to regular sencha, I haven't tried Asamushi). I'd love to hear your opinion on this tea when you receive it though! I can compare the Kasuga Zairai to the Uji Sencha Jubuzan when I'm getting towards the end of it.

Thanks for the heads up, I have been worrying about possible clay clashes, or is it something about that specific one I'm using? I'll definitely try it next time! I've been thinking of getting a fully glazed yuzamashi from one of the tea artisans here, that should be similar to glass/porcelain right?
