The ju ware is celadon. From my understanding Lin's
does their own firing.

auhckw - so which gaiwan do you like best? The white or the green?

Initially, I was planning to get white set but then I saw the greenish set is quite nice also. They showed me a nicely used green cup with all the veins glowing out, where a used white cup seems to be more yellowish inside. So I went ahead with green set.

Couldn't tell which I like best yet :D

Thank you, that is very interesting. I have been thinking about getting some white pieces, but if as you say, they turn more yellow, that is less appealing.

Forgot to mention, that Gaiwan (set) is able to fill up 4 cups. About 100ml capacity. So that set can be used from 1 to 4 person presentation.

Edit: I thought I am buying a porcelain, but from the label it says ceramic :shock:

Which I guess why it has some effect on water...

Unrelated product, but is made from ceramic. See the description for using ceramic
http://cgi.ebay.com/LOHAS-Natural-Ceram ... ltDomain_0
LOHAS Natural Ceramic Ball has a high surface area, and adsorbs many compounds. Water brewed with ball could be get rid of organic contamination, taste, or objectionable odors. Put the ceramic ball in a kettle can remove chlorine from treated water, removing any residual protection remaining in the water protecting against pathogens. Put the ball in your teacup can remove astringency and make your tea tastes mellow. You may also use it in wine, beer, soup or cook it along with rice.

beautiful! celadon has amazing "skin", very soft and pure touch.
The lines of your new set are very elegant.

Dragon Tea House has a 60ml Ru Kiln Gaiwan, I've been thinking about getting one instead of a travel set to get a small gaiwan.

Yeah that gaiwan looks lush. I have heard the top of it gets very hot though...so bare that in mind.

My ru kiln stuff is white and can confirm it does go a rather unattractive yellow. Thinking of getting some green stuff.

Got my eye on one of these

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... K:MEWAX:IT

Think its the slightly lighter glaze then the OP has? Think its darker green....lighter green...and moon white. Is that right OP?

Oh also if anyone is on the fence about getting a single piece of this I strongly recommend getting cup. This material is amazing to handle but comes in to its own when its on the lips.

is there no way of avoiding this, or is this something that happens with every white ru kiln?
i have some small light green celadon cups, and because i didnt rinse them with water after usage, some of the cups now have a nasty yellow ring at the bottom
i can not seem to get it cleaned
