Kyusu goes topless

During a recent trip to Japan I picked up this Chamiiru kyusu — "Chamiiru" is a brand name that literally means "see tea," which you can do with the Chamiiru as it's open on top instead of having a cover like an ordinary kyusu.

Its "big bowl" shape also allows you to swirl the tea around inside for thorough steeping. (This is done by moving the kyusu in a circular motion but requires practice and care if you don't want to end up reading the wet tea leaves all over your table.)

I'll post a photo of brewing tea with the Chamiiru soon. Stay tuned!
