It is good for tea. The key is that inside color is clear white. You can enjoy color of tea liquid. Also, aroma stays well on the surface of the cups comparing to unglazed cup. Smooth texture will give you good sense of feeling in your hand.
It is not thin not too thick. You can hold by hand even put hot water in it.
(Japanese way of poring tea in a cup is not filling more than 70 %, leave 30 % unfilled.)
Very stable when placing on your table. Nice to watch, good to use.
