Thanks, but after reading the posts, I'm thinking maybe the houhin would be nice to have. I'm hoping some additional kyusu's will be produced with this clay in the future. For now, I'm okay with kyusu pots. Would be nice to have a houhin. Lately I have been drinking out of my smaller porcelain cups, and less out of my 10oz cup. That's why I bought the160ml kyusu and was interested in the houhin. I found a nice 160ml kyusu on Artistic Nippon. I'm looking forward to trying it out.
I bought #2.

Definitely worth trying one out since I have one kyusu already and another on the way. I'm also thinking about ordering one of the boneware style gaiwan's from Hojo's site. I've been very anxious to try brewing tea in a gaiwan.faj wrote: ↑Tue Jan 07, 2020 2:17 pm
A hohin obviously has less protruding geomety, so takes a bit less space. The spout and handle on a teapot probably are features that are more likely to be chipped or broken.
A hohin is very likely to have very quick flow. I do not know what the pour speed is on Kobiwako kyusus, that may be an issue or not.
A hohin is easier to clean.
