If you search for sakewares, you might notice that many sake cups and carafes are made using tin. You may have wondered, "Why tin?" Well, it turns out this particular metal has a peculiar effect on sake. It's commonly noted that tin improves sake's flavor, making dry sake softer, milder, and less bitter. And tin wares can be used for enjoying both hot and cold sake, making them a versatile choice, too.
The Yukiwa Stainless Steel Sake Cup with Tin Lining has those benefits, but we also love its simple modern design and sturdy weight. It's a perfect little cup of joy – more than we can say for Kevin Costner's '90s rom-com.
