The flavor of green tea depends not only on the quality of tea and brewing process. It depends on the size, shape, and thickness of the vessel that it is brewed or served in. Tea served in a ceramic mug will taste different than tea served in a porcelain Yunomi.
Also, the appearance of the teacup should be in harmony with the tea to make a beautiful visual presentation. In Japan, traditionally it is thought that the green color of Sencha or Gyokuro looks lovely against a white background. Swaying green tea in a beautiful white teacup in addition to the relaxing flavor and aroma of the tea makes teatime more enjoyable!
These Yunomi we have selected for you are Tokoname-yaki, which is one of the most popular tea cups in Japan.
