In my culture, the Buddha looks like your "Oogie Boogie". We were very offended by that movie.

No, but seriously, I definitely see Oggie in there. Pretty great. Now I am wondering if I can somehow sculpt the eun moo. Pretty great really.

I just got gifted an AWESOME new teacup. The pattern reminds me of eun moo. I am very happy with it. Korean pottery I believe. Anyone with any info on this style please chime in!

PS-Buddha would understand if we didn't blow him away, but instead took his photo for a free teapot (Tingjunkie doesn't mess around when it comes to teapots!). I mean, Buddha was all about owning cool stuff anyways....

:lol: too funny.... maybe psychiatrists can substitute eun moo for the rohrschach test? (:

The cup in my pictures was the "tempest" hagi special offering from about a year ago. I usually test new teas in a 120mL gaiwan, and this cup is the absolute perfect size for teas brewed from that gaiwan.

Needa, that's a great cup! I can't provide any thoughts on its origins, though...

Haha, me too! :D Now I want to try and see if I can get myself some fun shapes... like cloudgazing. More meditative aspects to tea?

Friends were over yesterday for tea. We had an old pu that had eun moo. One guest was kind enough to write it out in Chinese.

In Hanyu Pinyin hese just indicate the tones in spoken Putonghua / Mandarin.

1 = ā (high flat)
2 = á (rising)
3 = ǎ (falling-rising)
4 = à (falling)
[no diacritic] = neutral (short, de-stressed flat tone)

These are somewhat further complicated by tone sandhis, for example, when two third tones are pronounced together, the first one is pronounced like second tone, or with certain words, a 4th tone word will turn into second tone before another 4th tone).

It gets a lot harder in some other Sinitic tonal languages, where there can be 7+ tones, and more complicated interactions between the tones.

I just drank something called Luwak Coffee, which is this rather pricey coffee that comes from some kind of cat-like ting. It eats the coffee berries and poos out the beans. It is supposed to be the best in the world. Tasted like normal coffee to me (I really prefer the other pu-based beverage!).

I mention it because....it had a very slight eun moo! Strange. I am gonna side the the opinion that you need a dark beverage, a dark cup, and hot water to see it. :)
