This is a tiny cup, made by a hakeme technique used in the past in Japan. Using brush strokes on unfired clay vessel. On the right there is an old hakeme cup from Japan.
Drinking tea out of this cup makes a true natural taste experience, the cups clay and its glazing brings out the natural taste of tea, not altered, not changed in any way, a clean and pure taste. The combination of the right clay and glaze achieved the top tasting level among all the Jiri Duchek cups I tried already (of course this could vary from a person to person).
This cup will nicely age, showing very tiny glaze cracks and its overall texture will turn it into an unique gem.
