Japanese teacups for an elevated experience. Imported directly from renowned studios and masters in Japan.
Classic Yunomi Teacups
Tall, cylindrical and handle-free, the classic Japanese Yunomi is suitable for the everyday enjoyment of all kinds of Japanese tea. Owing to their shape and density, they are particularly well suited for teas served at higher temperatures such as Hojicha, Genmaicha and Bancha – making them excellent hand-warmers during the colder months.
Jingdezhen Porcelain Teacups
Traditional Chinese tea cups, known as Ping Ming Bei (品茗杯 (lit."tasting teacup") sourced directly from Jingdezhen: the birthplace of porcelain. This small Northern city has been producing ceramics for over a thousand years and was home to some of China's most important imperial kilns.
The 400 year old Asahiyaki kiln in Uji, Kyoto has specialised in Sencha utensils since the 19th century when interest in loose leaf tea began to grow in Japan. Asahiyaki are known for their delicately coloured porcelains and handleless Hōhin teapots that have long been de rigueur in Kyoto for serving fine Gyokuro.
