  1. I bought two bottles of Rikyu Cha several years ago and am down to one (which I opened within the past year). I like this ink, cos it’s interesting, but I do prefer when it dries greener than browner. For me, it tends to dry browner. I’ll try using it in a “drier” pen. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I’ve recently acquired a bottle. I just dipped an Osmiroid B3 italic nib into the bottle and I find the ink quite fascinating. It goes down wet and very green, and in moments dries to that tobacco leaf brown. My drying times were not that long really (I will time it next chance I get). I would be happy if it stayed the wet green colour, but the brown is pretty nice too! FWIW I was writing on Rhodia grid paper. Didn’t see any feathering either. As this ink is going to be re-released I will grab a few bottles as substitutes for the Pen & Message Cigar that is unobtainium here.

    1. I bet that’s a great nib for it. So glad you like it. And yeah my feathering was on absorbent paper. Rhodia is a champ. But … have you tried it with Tomoe River? The sheen! 🙂


  3. I am glad you did a review on this one. I would definitely go for the sample. This was on my list to try. I do like sheen, but shading is the main thing I look for. I especially like very dark shading. 🙂

  4. This looks like a lovely ink. I hate that is seems to behave poorly in terms of feathering. I use to much cheap paper for this ink to be one I would want to add to my collection. Thanks for another great review.
