Haven’t posted any teaware porn for a while, so here goes
I love this bowl. The only flaw is that the brown colour on the exterior is probably a tad bit too much. These bowls are great for matcha, because their dark colour provides a sharp relief for the lightness of the tea. The Japanese then adopted it wholesale and kept using them, while Chinese moved on from these to lighter coloured bowls because taste in tea changed over time. They won’t be any good making tea that is brewed, because the colours won’t show properly, but when whisked, that’s a totally different story.
