Received today 2 japanese green tea orders : one from Thés du Japon, and the other from Postcard Teas, with other delicacies in it... I won't need tea until spring teas comes out ! I am so overwhelmed with so many tea bags, like a child looking at presents under a christmas tree...

I got it from eBay. I think it is Kyo-yaki (from Kyoto) rather than Arita.

Nice curlicue handles on the side of that little houhin--an elegant touch with the subtly rustic glaze. Lovely aesthetics and I'm sure equally fine function.

How does that pot handle Fuka David?

There seems to be more then enough holes in the direct filter.
