Well, gyokuro is hard to pull off in an organic.

Ooops, missed your question.

Have only used it twice so far, really am lacking the type of sencha that would match up with this material, etc. However it is a really fun kyusu to use. Despite the small handle (small pot), using the knuckle grip is clearly what the artisan had in mind when making this and it feels perfect.

Tencha-Kuki Houjicha

This is the very first (loose leaf) tea I've brewed myself. I think I did it correct - it tastes delicious!

Well, it is in the TeaCave Museum of Teaware Arts ... :mrgreen:

Used it again today. I certainly enjoy the feel and I still need a more veggie asamushi to really see how it performs. Maybe some Hebizuka will be coming my way? :wink:
