Enjoy tea, espresso, and sake in these charming yunomi. Less formal than chawan, yunomi are handleless ceramic cups traditionally for drinking tea.
These cups exhibit traditional Japanese glazing techniques and subtle color combinations that are earthy and retro at the same time. Suzumebachi means hornet in Japanese.
Originally made in the 1960s, these cups never made it stateside. For over 50 years, they were stored in the small city of Toki in Gifu Prefecture. It was fate that we met the owner of Kenzan Ceramics when visiting Toki City, who told us about these forgotten pieces that his father made.
They are lead-free and dishwasher safe.
