A savvy tea columnist (hell, might have been me) once remarked of first-flush Darjeeling: "The harder it is to articulate the beautiful things going on in the cup, the better the leaf". Titled as a bent Apple (had to choose something), there are a lot of beautiful things going on within this composition, but damned if the totality of impact isn't hard to articulate. The arc running from the rear of the mount to the top of the rim forms a perfect semi-circle with the macro-silhouette reminding me of a quarter-moon. The proportional ratios of the mount and bowl are astonishingly close, lending a sleek, modernist continuity to the briar. Petite, the delightfully spherical execution of the bowl doesn't feel like an interrupt to that continuity, merely a beautiful and logical completion. Featuring interior bowl dimensions of .74" x 1.42", a tasty flake or coin tobacco should sing in this beauty. Jared & John have really kicked in the afterburners.
