This Yonomi Japanese teacup features a famous print by artist Tōshūsai Sharaku who was a Japanese Ukiyo-eprint designer, known for his portraits of Kabuki actors. This cup is made of porcelain, which is a hard, fine-grained, nonporous ceramic ware.
The cool white interior of this Yonomi teacup provides the perfect backdrop for appreciating the color of any tea liquor.
As with many authentic Japanese traditional tea cups, there is no tea handle.
Instead, you have to grasp the teacup with your right hand and your left hand cupping the bottom for support.
Japanese tea is served at a much lower temperature than boiling water, in particular as green tea gives the best flavour when the water is at around 70-80 degrees Celsius.
