I find I like the subtlety of the design. It is not too glaring but instead it has a simple yet subtle beauty. It feels wonderful to hold with a mild texture, a nice weight, and a perfect curve. It does get rather hot if you have some fairly piping Macha in it which is the ONLY bad thing about it but that is not uncommon for this type of bowl. It also cleans up really fast and effortlessly. Generally just warm water and a little rubbing will make it good as new in a few seconds. It is also nicely durable standing up to even a bit of abuse I gave it with a metal spoon without a scratch.
If it came in a few other colors I might just have to buy some more!—Umbreona
