A teacup by yumiko iihoshi porcelain, with a delicate touch. Specially available for a short time.
We chose this teacup by yumiko iihoshi porcelain as one of our limited holiday gift selections this year, for its simplicity and elegance.
It comes in a box, and makes for a special gift for someone dear. Or, choose several for your own use, and serve tea while relaxing with family at home this winter.
The cup is a light porcelain material with gloss, and it feels delicate and refined to the touch.
It is made with a tall, straight shape that focuses the aromas of teas when you drink from it. We enjoy how it brings out the vibrant fragrance of sencha, the roasted fragrance of hojicha, and other deep nuances of our teas.
It also beautifully highlights the colors of Ippodo teas. You can use it to serve other teas and beverages like sake as well, and you can wash it with soap and in the dishwasher.
