Made in Japan from fine ceramics, this Japanese tea cup set displays the characters "On", "Ko", "Chi", and "Shin" which is literally translated as "new", "intellectual", "past" and "warm". The literal meaning of each word does not make much sense, but "OnKoChiShin" is a popular Japanese idiom which means "learn from the past", "take wisdom from ancient teachings", and "follow the old ways." This phrase is from the Analects of Confucius who is a famous ancient Chinese philosopher. With small ridges and an uneven smooth glaze, these tea cups are an off white color accented by a pale blue rim at the top and with the characters displayed in dark black strokes on the front of each cup. Share this Japanese tea cup set of wisdom with your friends and family as you enjoy a relaxing cup of tea. This set comes in an attractive gift box.
