A charming teacup with an appealing shape and size. This cup is the classic size for ‘sencha service‘, and shows well the subtleties of the various shades of steeped Sencha. With a capacity of 4 oz., the size is perfect for green tea and oolongs that are re-steeped and provide numerous refills.
The cup is coated with a bright white glaze and has a unique finish. Both the interior and exterior have an interesting texture finish that replicates the use of a piece of cloth to impress a pattern into the clay before firing. Several expressive lines of glossy blue and light green glaze add a nice splash of color to the cups interior.
Although technically a sencha cup, the steeped liquor of many types of tea would look lovely in this cup.
Slight variations in the painting, colors, tooling, patterning and kiln effects of Chinese and Japanese tea wares are to be expected. We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colors and subtle tones slightly differently.
