The Japanese culture is known for its Tea Ceremony that we usually see in movies. The ceremony appears to be a ritual with every move in tea preparation done in a seemingly strict protocol.
The Yunomi teacup set, on the other hand, is for the informal tea drinking that the Japanese do every day.
Unlike with polished cups used in Japanese Tea Ceremony, we see in movies, and the yunomi teacup is taller than wide. The Japanese cup also comes with a trimmed foot which makes everyday tea drinking activity much more comfortable.
You can also have more serving of the beverage than when it is served in the traditional Japanese porcelain teacups.
This particular teacup set we feature here is made from the famous Japanese traditional Kutani. It is 3.4 inches tall and 3.6 inches wide.
While we keep on saying that these Japanese teacups are used in informal tea drinking sessions, they are not without the rich artistic background that their counterparts have.
The Yunomi teacup set is made with colored porcelain known as Kutani. For this featured product, the teacup is designed with overglaze colors applied with fluid brushwork.
The colors were a combination of green, yellow, red, purple, and blue, which is distinct for genuine Kutani porcelain.
Whether in sets or in standalone, this Yunomi teacup set is a charming gift for the newlyweds or for retiring couples. It can also be an adorable giveaway for colleagues and coworkers.
We know of a couple who gave this away as a party favor during their wedding.
We heard it is also a hit among artists, painters, writers, designers, even Broadway actors. And so with that, you can have this for yourself.
