The tradition of Japanese tea ceremony dates back over 1,000 years and is a carefully choreographed ritual of preparing and pouring tea. With this huge history behind it, a Japanese teacup represents a great deal of Japanese culture and tradition. This Japanese Teacup is a nod to this great tradition, while taking a leap to the modern day.
This ceramic teacup is deeper and thinner than many Asian teacups and features a subtle, horizontal ridge around the bottom of the cup. Finished in a matte glaze that is done by hand, the light blue, pearl, and gray design is refined, but not isolating. It is easy to feel the earthen warmth of this Japanese Teacup, despite the cool exterior. When filled with green tea, called "Matcha" in Japan, you can fight off any chill or rainy day.
At 3” inches in diameter and 3 ½” inches deep, this Japanese teacup is the perfect size for pouring tea for friends, which is a great reason to consider adding a set for four
to your Asian tableware collection! The Arctic Ice Tableware Collection
also includes a full Japanese Tea Set
that can be used in a classy restaurant or at home.
