This is a very nice cup, especially for the price.
It's got a nice weight to it, so it doesn't feel like you're about to break it.

I bought this because I needed a cup around 150-ish mls, and this seemed to fit the bill nicely. It's an excellent cup for daily drinking, wonderful, in fact. It holds the right amount of sencha I want to drink, and it's around the size of my gaiwan and Yixing pots (perfect!).
There is one thing, though. The colr of the cup is not white. It has a blue-ish tint to it. I've found that it adds that extra green-ness to my green teas (Japanese and Chinese) and detracts nothing from the color of my oolongs and puerhs (sheng and shou). It is, however, dificult to do an accurate judge of color with a tinted cup, so for tea reviewing purpoes I'll be sicking with my white cups. But otherwise, this is perfect! :)

Advantages: Well weighted

Perfectly sized


Disadvantages: Blue tinted-ness can throw off tea colors

I got four of these cups. Really quite lovely and very nice quality considering the low price. Obviously nothing artisan, but still a very nice cup. I would consider these to be the perfect size too.

Delightful classic blue and white shows off matcha to perfection. Robust enough for the clumsy and delicate enough to be a pleasure to use. Well-priced.

I bought two of these cups so as to have a small set and i must say they are nice little cups they look exactly like in the pictures, i like how the blue blends in with the white to give it a nice colour. and for £3.50 (roughly) it was a brilliant steal.

I recommend these cups if your looking for a small nice set but don't want to spend too much.
