Beautiful setup. I'm also drinking Chiran fukamushi sencha. This one is from Yuuki-Cha. It's pretty good stuff, usual deep grassy flavor, but nothing exceptional.

Still enjoying Chinese greens while waiting for the 2019 versions of my favorite Japanese greens to arrive at O-Cha. Today - tai ping hou kui from Tea Trekker. It’s good for at least 5 infusions.

I love the crackle glaze on this celadon cup that I purchased from a kiln In Chiang Mai. The glaze is made with ash from a local tree, although I was told at the kiln that most of the wood now comes from nearby in Laos.

Fascinating cup to enhance your tea enjoyment. I'm enjoying Obubu's Kabuse sencha this morning, sweet, vegetal, delicate, so fine, from Ginkgo's 'granite' yunomi. These are not from today's session, but are of this complexly glazed cup. I call it 'granite' because the bits of color inclusions remind me of granite rocks, with the sparkle and the crackles and bubbles like the tiny crystals that make granite so fascinating the closer you look.



It is lovelier the closer you look
