Remember how I advised choosing the color of your bowl depending on the tea you brew?
Yesterday, I bought beautiful green cups, very thin at the rim, but thick at the bottom. They feel quite heavy and warm in your hand when you hold them. And the glaze is so smooth, that it's like a caress on your lower lip...
My purpose was to verify Lu Yu's study that this kind of green color will show green tea in all its splendor. For that, I brewed some post Qing Min Jie Bi Lo Chun 2005 and the result needs no further comment. Just compare with the color in both cups.
Lu Yu, thank you! You're the greatest!
