Top 3 chawans for this summer !
Here's our personal top 3 choices for this summer :
1) 妙 A kuro (black) large, low chawan
An ascetic feeling. The green of the macha feels wide in the palms.
茶禅一味 : cha zen ichi-mi : tea and zen have the same taste.
2) 根, a red kairagi summer chawan
Smaller than the black one, a more "rural", smiling feeling.
3) 隨, a porcelain green nearly flat chawan
This chawan is so flat that it might be difficult to move the chasen in it. But it feels so fresh to the eye !
