Designed and made in Japan.
Looking for a versatile tea cup to accompany your regular tea time, as well as your Japanese tea experience? This might well be exactly what you need.
A beautiful tea cup made in fine ceramics and hand painted by Kyoto-based artist Showko.
With the less-known Japanese traditional Sencha tea ceremony in mind, where sencha tea is poured from a common pot into individual cups, this cup expresses the perfect harmony between Western lifestyle and Japanese traditions.
Choose the tea and style following your mood or your guest’s preferences, without giving up your usual set.
The cup is also available, and looks the best, as part of a Sencha Ceremony Set including 4 cups and a tea pot sporting a matching design.
Instructions for use
The design of these cups is perfect for the Japanese sencha tea ceremony, and is likely to be immediately recognized as such by a Japanese person. With this in mind, its small size may also be ideal for serving green tea (especially ryokucha or shincha) or, why not, espresso coffee with a bit of care due to the lack of a handle.
