This afternoon's tea

A Miyazaki Kamairicha prepared in a Tokoname kyusu from Aichi (brand new--just broke my trusty main kyusu), decanted in a glass chahai, and served in an Arita porcelain cup. The komon-print canister in the background is where I store this particular tea.

This afternoon, enjoying some Zei Shi Dan Cong from Tea Habitat in a small Greenwood Studio cup, brewed in a 50mL 'yixing' teapot, whose polishing has been sadly neglected, but I vow to make up for that now, both cup and pot dwarfed by Petr Novak's yuzamashi.

Thanks, Chip! Sadly, I do not have any pics of my own that show off the chataku by themselves--but I got them in this swap from Ambrose: http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=15490 . His pictures are much better than mine! :D I really do like them--oddly enough, not only do I like the look, but whenever I clink a cup or teapot against the edge, they also make this lovely ringing chime sound. An unexpected bonus!

... ohhh, the swap. Opportunity missed. :mrgreen:

Hagi SO Tempest with mystery asamushi brewed in a mysterious Touju Kyusu. Oh, and realllly old "supporting actor" chataku. (I think we need a "best supporting actor" topic for teaware that is never THE star but shines anyway ... been wanting to for a while actually)
