Ambrose -Offer Natsume Biri Kyusu

by Ambrose » Aug 13th, '10, 09:31

Im offering my Natsume Biri Kyusu by Gyokko for grabs. Im asking $65 plus cost of shipping, I paid more than that for it. Its in like new condition, only had it a few months. Pours out a nice 6oz of brew, fine sesame filter, I still have the cardboard box it came it. Ive now got a shigaraki kyusu that has taken the spotlight. So this one needs a new home, I nicknamed this pot "the sencha assassin" :D

Really? You sure? That would be an excellent kyusu for fukamushi (or any sencha or any tea). The taller kyusu were supposedly designed to brew fuka, and I can attest they work better for fuka than lower sasame screened kyusu.

Looks like a great kyusu!

I have to see if I can scrape up $65.

This would be a relative to your pot, correct? :wink:

Thank you, I actually didnt know this, very insightful! :D Im actually an asamushi man :mrgreen: also Im a bit of a minimalist. Well that and Shigaraki-san (nickname for the other pot) spoiled me :)

Wow, I'm tempted too. I almost got that pot with my last order.
A bit small for me though, but it is a great pot!

It is a very nice looking kyusu, but small for me as well, I was wondering how much larger kyusus come? Are they only for single cups of tea?

I've seen them as big as 15oz and I'm sure they come in even larger sizes as well.

That is a great looking kyusu btw. :shock:
