I have encountered Jianzhan blackware many times in my studies of Chinese history and Chinese tea culture, and I even purchased a few graceful clear-glazed imitations in the past. Holding the real thing in my hands, however, is a very different experience. The complexity of the yòu and the weight of the cup, just to name two characteristics that immediately stand out, they speak volumes about the quality of this fine object. Just as zǐshā, you can notice the effect as the glaze interacts marvellously with tea (especially if you use a fine water with TDS <50 ppm). For this quality, I am happy to pay a little more. Highly recommended.
