Blue Hagi

Photo: Tea for Me Please
After taking more than eight weeks to get here from Japan, my seigan blue hagi sencha cup finally arrived. I’ve never had one take this long and I was getting very nervous that it had been lost. This one was another TeaChat special order (of course). It is my first blue hagi and I love it :). Color can be hard to convey with flash and the variances between monitors but I did the best I could. When I drink from it, it feels like I am looking into the sky. I do think I still need to add a midnight blue hagi piece to the collection though. After the holidays I hope to get a display shelf to display all of my hagi on. Right now they are packed away in the their boxes but I’d love to be able to enjoy them even when I am not drinking tea.
