This fine tea bowl has a classic conical shape that allows tea to cool rapidly. Thus it’s preferable for hot summer season. The bowl features a unique crackle glaze that was created with the help of so called craquelure technique when the glaze shrinks more than the clay. Note, that "cracks" have not only a decorative effect. If you continue to drink tea of the same type from the same bowl, brew will reveal more and more flavors and hues in the course of time. So the longer you enjoy the item - the richer the taste of tea.
