I love the look of this teacup. The white glaze is thick and shiny, resembling wet paint.

Advantages: The large size allows for an entire shiboridashi or kyusu to be poured into the cup, which is perfect for when one is drinking alone.

The natural variation in the sides of the cup feels great in the hand, and the thickness of the unglazed bottom of the teacup helps with holding the cup when it is hot.

Disadvantages: There were some cracks in the glaze, which means it almost looks like it is crumbling off the edges of the lip of the cup. I worry some of the paint could eventually start to peel, but as of yet this has not been a problem. I am careful to not use abrasive cleaning!

This cup is unique, with a swirling pattern of what looks like wet paint. A nice hand-made design. It holds a full kyusu of tea (using the dragonfly kyusu) which is why I went for a larger size...great for the mornings. It's very comfortable in your hand.

Advantages: Larger size
Comfortable in your hand

Disadvantages: none

I'd never thought that I would write a review on a teacup, so here it is...

Beautiful addition to my new hobby. It really does make drinking sencha a great experience.

I have enjoyed this cup so much that I bought a second. The sediment from the tea forms a beautiful spiral galaxy in the bottom. Between the taste of O-cha's sencha teas and the beauty of this bowl, I'm enjoying my simple daily ritual very much. I like the larger size of this bowl. Fits in my hand perfectly.
