Initial impression from this taiwanese highland wulong is an aroma of ground-cherry and wheat-grass which evolves into fresh vanilla and flowers. Rich creamy texture with sweet final notes of coconut.

The distinct finish on these elegant pieces is created using a clay powder in the glaze.
These fine Makiko bowls have a unique soft glaze. The cracked finish will evolve with each infusion as the tannins enter the cracks and enrich the overall finish.
To learn more about the approach of the artist, see the article devoted to it in our tea tasters blog.
The craft used for these bowls makes each one unique so colour gradients and format will vary from one to another. The true beauty of artisanal work.

Much like abstract art, Makiko's spotting and clouding glazes evoke as many things as there are people to look at it. Landscapes, sweets, burning balloons... feel free to gaze all you want.
