Thank you :)

I got my hands on small houhin, holds 110cc when filled until border. Probably soon can get at least several Tokoname kyusu as well.

Sencha Ran ... very good and a very good value! Nice depth in aroma and full flavored.

Chip, glad you liked it!

I just fixed photos, noticed that white balance was off. When took photos forgot to change mode :) Until shincha most likely won't be any more new teas, expect Yame matcha genmaicha.

Fukamushi Botan opened today. The dry leaf aroma was mind blowing.

EDIT: oops, deleted the original image from my photobucket somehow. Here is another Botan session! Image

New tea, Yame Organic. This may be the best organic for the price I have ever had ... on first tasting. The aroma is wonderful as well.

I thought of completing some side jobs before shincha season starts, but one of projects gone really wrong and got me swallowed completely. Getting sick in that time didn't help either.

Returned home few days ago and finally sorted out most things, including photos of new teapots :D

Added many Tokoname kyusu from 100ml to 360ml and thanks to good source i can keep the prices at same level as local retail prices in Tokoname.

My luck is not so good this year, only recently more or less recovered from health problems. About a week and half could return home. Sadly health insurance only covers part of expenses, so this will take a while to recover too :(

But there are also good news, shincha is now available along with some new teas. Better late than never :) In addition, soon i might also have limited amount of Yame temomicha! I already have small amount on my hands and will take photos soon.

Some photos still missing, but i'm working on this. Hope i can complete them in a day or two.

And another note, we moved to new domain and shop name also has changed to Zenhodo. I'm not native english speaker and was not aware that Hakoniwado was difficult to remember, many were not sure how to pronounce it either. Thanks to feedback from bambooforest, who made me realize this and few other problems i had.

Have a nice day.

Great to have you back! Hope your health is getting better each day.

Also great to hear about your shincha as I have been anxious to again have some of your Yame shincha!

Thanks, as long as i don't forget to drink my medicine i'm almost fine. Should be possible to completely recover too.

Almost done with photos and adding new items. Added matcha beginner kits again, though different chawans this time.

For teachat members also can make custom Tokoname ceramic orders (not limited to kyusu), the product lineup is rather big and there is no way i can add everything to my shop, especially kyusu well over 10000yen. So if someone is searching for something special, can send full catalog.
