    A Handful of Delicate Scenery that Leads You to the Journey of Tea.

    A uniquely crazed cup pigmented with Sumi-ink

    A perfectly sized tea cup with a beautiful pattern pigmented with Sumi-ink.

     

    The compact, 100ml cup (full capacity)  is perfect to enjoy a warm cup of tea.

    Slightly bigger than Nankei Pottery Tea Cup: Milky White.


    This naturally occurred pattern is called crazing, and the glazing reveals this unique pattern benefitting from the difference in how the clay and glazing shrink throughout the process. This crazing is then pigmented with Sumi-ink, a charcoal based ink. 

     

     

    Since the craze lets the liquid through between its micro-fine lines, the craze will grow deeper in color as you use. Enjoy and embrace the process of "nurturing" your tool and mark your own tea journey with it. 

    You may notice a "pinging" sound until the initial crazing process settles down, but this is not a sign of defect or cracking.

    As I've used this cup I can see the craze slowly getting darker. There's just something interesting about having a cup that improves with time.

    Beautiful and simple

    These cups are perfect for Sencha tea and are really easy to use to make this tea traditionally. They also look beautiful with their cracked glazing and off white colouring. I can’t recommend these enough for sencha tea!
