Plum blossom, "Ume" in Japanese, is a much loved symbol of the early spring season in Japan. Hand-crafted by Mori Shunzan, famous for its succession of the highly revered Ogata Kenzan (1663-1743) style porcelain, this PLUM BLOSSOM YUNOMI TEA CUP is not only exquisite in terms of its design, but is also highly practical - being a quite generous size for a Yunomi teacup, it can be used as a tea cup as well as a matcha bowl.
In addition, the beautiful flare curve of the rim, while being aesthetically pleasing, also enhances the tea flavour when your lips touch the Yunomi.
A sophisticated, highly versatile Kyo-Yaki (Kyoto Style) porcelain that will enhance your tea ritual.

- The Yunomi Tea Cup comes in a sophisticated paper box. A perfect choice as a gift.
