Also I don't know if Hojo are ever getting anymore Shigaraki, unless you've heard otherwise?.....its been a long time since the last batch, but its still listed so maybe there's hope!. If I didnt have my siggy i would have gone for Kobiwako with a ball filter. And although its artificially blended I still rate Hokujo clay for a nice even brew of sencha.
I am in constant contact with Akira and he told me that the new batch of shigaraki is coming in one to two months' time. So watch that space.
That's good news for those waiting. Bet those won't last long!
