New ivory porcelain teacup

My latest addition to my selection of teaware: this teacup is just 3 cm high and 7 cm in diameter.
It contains 2 cl only in normal use and weighs 46 grams.

Its small size makes it a good fit for small teapots and several drinkers. I like the simplicity of its lines. And, I like the little opening at the rim. This detail adds a lot of softness to the contact with the lip.

Cette petite coupe possède en effet des lignes magnifiques. Splendide ! J'y verrai bien quelques petites goûtes de gyokuro...
Aussi, je te renvois le compliment, bravo pour cet excellent blog... et pour la qualité des photos qui me font mourir de jalousie !

Pour les photos, tu as plus de chance que moi: tu habites le pays de la photo! Vas t'acheter un bon Canon ou Nikon. Ensuite prends 2 ingredients: de la bonne lumière et l'envie de partager la beauté du thé!

Pour y mettre du Gyokuro, cela serait sympa que tu m'envoies un petit mail...

You are killing me. So many subtle yet beautiful tea cups. It makes deciding that much more challenging.

I enjoy your blog very much, and continue to learn a lot.
