This lovely cup keeps beverages both hot and cold. It is beautiful and a very comfortable cup. I truly love this piece and would highly recommend it to others. It is a lovely experience with each use. I drink Matcha from it and water. I use it daily and think that the artist made this with his or her own hands just for me. It feels special to have a hand made item from Japan. I have visited your beautiful country and adore the attention to detail that is ever present. This is a treasure and as stated I use it daily and am looking at it as I sip my water and write this review. Buy it and enjoy.
