I ordered two of these beautiful cups to use them in private and in company both as normal tea cups and as matcha bowls. The cup is exquisite, naturally rough and beautifully made. It looks almost like something not quite made by man, something we could find lying under a tree, by a river, and yet something not arbitrary, something done with a purpose. The tea looks perfect in it, its green made more intense, the cup's inner cracks more evasive... It was hard (for me) to let go of a couple of hundred euros (plus customs taxes), but now I don't regret it anymore. What are euros to beauty?
