Duchek’s kohiky cups
Content of the cup:
I asked Jiri to make these cups as I find them very special, for drinking, for seasoning, for their special features. Their are very similar in size and in shape still they are different.
The tea cups show ‘wet’ colour effect, when its wet it will change its colour. This teaware is called kohiki. This teaware also makes the tea taste less bitter.
Please watch this video from 7:22 minute why this is happening. Also notice in this video how the old tea bowls cracks get coloured and showing as a shark skin pattern. Absolutely stunning. Such teaware was back in time in Japan very highly priced.
The cups were made in a batch of about 24 pieces. Each cup reflects potters mood/idea/thought, it’s not drawn beforehand, it’s made only at that moment, here and now, once made, once fired and maybe used for your lifetime.
This tea will wake up all senses and cells of your body. Wake up and stay here.
Going from cup to cup you realise the purity of this tea. Even made in autumn it would show no bad signs of autumn bad processing. Its silky, soft texture will accompany you for many steeps.
The autumn sheng pu-erh teas has this special 'baked' feel, it is like fermented tea with watery sweet notes on the tongue.
