Review I love these multi-cups! I also own the Spring/Summer HANA KIKOH Pair (Peony & Grape) that were available this past year and since I have really enjoyed using those in different ways I was excited to see these to round out all Four Seasons. Since I love everything about Matcha I enjoy it quite often, definitely at least once a day, oftentimes more, and having these cups as options to set a specific Seasonal atmosphere or feeling just based on my mood is great! They are wonderful when enjoying Matcha a bit differently throughout the year. For example, last Summer it was nice to have a cold Matcha Smoothie in the Peony or Grape multi-cup. Now, it's an even more wonderfully yummy and fun treat to enjoy my Hot Matcha Chocolate in one of these Autumn/Winter Flower themed multi-cups. It was also a lovely experience to enjoy the extremely delicious Limited Autumn Kuradashi Matcha in one of these, Plum or Persimmon, multi-cups. I will always remember one night this past year when my Mother and I enjoyed HIBIKI-AN'S awesome Kuradashi Matcha's warm, enriched sweetness while watching a Seasonal meteor shower on the porch! I find it very delightful to have these newest additions to the HANA KIKOH Series to choose from when enjoying my Matcha as well as to offer for others to use with me, together. They are a welcome addition to my Tea Ware and definitely enhance my Green Moments, especially when it comes to Matcha because I am able to have another option besides the usual larger, standard sized Matcha Bowls. Both Plum and Persimmon are indeed painted both elegantly and yet modestly on either cup, accented with touches of gold here and there for beautiful dimension. It is nice to contemplate a specific color as you sip your Tea and relax or to just ponder the flower, Season, and so on with these lovely multi-cups. Each one is handcrafted and painted so none are ever identical. I personally find my Persimmon cup to give off a "warmer" feel/atmosphere with it's rich shades of red, orange, and deep green while my Plum cup has a "cooler" effect/atmosphere due to the glinting white plum and exposed branches. This size cup is very easy to hold too, whether using one or both hands. I highly enjoy and appreciate this Artist, Shunzan Mori's works! Thanks again, to him, as well as HIBIKI-AN!
