A little over a year ago I got a sample of KWZ cappuccino. Only quite recently I got to use it and I really loved it.
It turned out to be a very complex brown. Think Lie de The with a tinge of moss-green. Somehow it reminded me of Rikyu-Cha, but whereas Rikyu-Cha is green with a hint of a brown, this one was brown with a hint of green.
So, of course, I ordered a bottle. And of course, the ink in the bottle, although very, very close, is not the same as was in the sample.
The green hue is gone now.
I found a review on YouTube where the ink looks exactly like what I had in the sample vial:
However, there are other reviews, where Cappuccino looks like what I got in the bottle:
I suppose this could be attributed to the fact that the ink is hand-made and may vary from batch to batch.
The problem is that now, having seen the ink that came in the sample, I can't sleep... I want *that* exact ink! :-)
I was wandering if others have also experienced this and if perhaps I could mix something with it to get the green hue back.
