16619292212_20d35e6949_cI ordered it from Kathryn and Ai of Studio KotoKoto (and waited nearly six months for a new shipment). But it’s here and I love it.

16412639947_c6a874941c_c…and there’s one with thicker tines meant for koicha/thick tea.

16593967336_36681d444e_cI’m also thinking about this baby one for Nodate tea ceremonies. Next time ^-^
