Be aware that one of the outcomes of chronic Teaware Acquisition Disorder is the creation of a mini-museum.

Here is an older Chosen-Garatsu, or Korean Karatsu chawan. This bowl is from around the second half of the 19th century, but I don't let that stop me from using it!

This is very clearly a grave case. You could already be beyond hope!

What a gorgeous chawan--normally I'm not all that fond of chawan with an uneven lip, but that one just seems to flow beautifully.

Odd question for the resident chawan/matcha experts--in reading about tea ceremony, I noticed that one side of the bowl is designated as the shomen (face) or front of the bowl, and that you're supposed to drink from the opposite side. Is there any particular aesthetic or rules that go into deciding which side should be the face, as there are in bonsai? Or is it entirely up to the preference of the owner?

TBH, 70% of the cup size for me is based upon mood. 30% is based on the tea. Sometimes I feel like a larger wan, sometimes a guinomi.

I never know til after I pick the tea, the pot ... and then decide on cup(s).

There are the particular teas that have more of a requirement for size, such as gyokuro, matcha ... but othewise, mood reigns supreme.[/quote]

Sometimes it goes the other way round for me--want to use a particular cup and need to drink the right tea for that cup, e.g., not hot-brewed puerh in large deep thin-walled Hagi.....but mostly it is mood, whim, what have you.
Here is my new tea pot:

I begin to understand that the preparation, the sensations produced by the colors, smells, tastes of the tea is very personal.

I'm back to making tea black in the teapot new and I don't boiled water, it is surprising how different it was all the lighter color, the taste is not so strong, the delicate scent, and this only with varying temperature, there were no problems in the infusion to allow more time because the color does not darkened more, and no problems with caffeine.Thank you Chip and Debunix

The face is the side with the most aesthetic interest. In most cases, it's pretty easy to determine which side is the face. Whether through painted decorations or though natural occurances, one particular feature will generally jump out as the face. Determining the face becomes hard with bowls that are uniform. In those cases, the owner of the bowl will carefully examine it and determine which side they feel should be the face. So, in short, it's up to the owner of the bowl, or the host of the tea ceremony.
