This simple and elegant senchawan (sencha cup) is made in a clean, modern, and minimalist style, made from black Tokoname kokudei (黒泥) clay. At the base of the interior is a small circle of white slip, which allows you to see the true colour of the tea.

With a classic tulip shape and a modest 35ml capacity, this cup is ideal for savouring high-grade sencha or gyokuro, and also functions well as a cup for gong fu cha.

Made by Shōhō Kiln (昭萠窯).

Tokoname-yaki (常滑焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Tokoname in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The site of one of Japan’s Six Ancient Kilns, pottery has been made in Tokoname since the 12th century.

Today, Tokoname ware is known for its iconic brick-red clay called shudei. Famously used in teaware and bonsai pots, this clay’s vibrant colour comes from its rich iron content. Tea steeped in unglazed Tokoname teapots is said to have a mellower taste.

Dimensions:

5.5cm (2.2in) - width
3.8cm (1.5in) - height
