    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, difficult 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

    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.

    It was a gift for my wife.  She likes this cup.

    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.
