I have just received these beautiful Whispering Water yunomi in the mail today, and I must say I am absolutely blown away. The delicate curvature of the cup fits perfectly in the hand and emits a sense of elegance and calm. The white porcelain is unbelievably light and thin, and the ridge around the middle provides a visual break in the smoothness of the outside while creating a very comfortable grip. Unlike the photos, the blue glaze is actually much more subtle, a feature that I thought I wouldn't like, but it only serves to enhance the color of the tea in a most pleasing way. The curvature of the bowl perfectly concentrates the tiny tea leaves at the bottom of the cup, creating a beautiful effect and enhancing the aroma and flavor of the tea. These are beautiful everyday teacups that you won't hesitate to also entertain with. They fit both casual settings and special occasions with equal panache, and I'm extremely glad I purchased them.
