Traditional Japanese teaware for two.

Enjoy your favourite green teas like the Japanese with this set of two ceramic teacups. Made in Japan, each of these handleless teacups is finished in rustic beige and forest green, with patterns of ume plum blossoms and vertical stripes of varying thickness. The rounded, bowl-like shape of these cups makes them ideal for holding within both cupped hands; one of Japan's preferred methods for tea-drinking. Teacups measure approx. 9.5cm in diameter, 7cm in height.

ITEM ID: #12295

Background

Like British culture has an iconic teacup (small, with a delicate handle, accompanied by a matching saucer), typical Japanese teacups also have a distinct shape and style. They are always handleless and either cylindrical or bowl shaped, designed to be held firmly in one or both hands and drunk at a low table, as has been the Japanese custom for millennia. For all the necessary teacups, teapots, and other tea equipment needed for the traditional Japanese green tea experience, check out japancentre.com’s Teaware section.
