The Taiga is a flat-bottomed five-hole bowl.
Features of this model:
Milk firing protects the bowl from absorbing syrup for better durability
Unlike glazed bowls, it redistributes heat more evenly throughout the bowl
More efficient use of tobacco inside the bowl thanks to the flat bottom
Standard size for smoking for an hour or more
The cup is well suited for loose fillings of medium moisture tobacco, such fillings can be conventionally considered to be of medium strength, in comparison with strong fillings on glazed cups of the classic shape.
