Description

Use the sora green Japanese stoneware tea cup to enjoy an authentic cup of Japanese green tea. Prepare your tea in a teapot, then carefully pour into the sora tea cup – and if you get a single tea leaf floating upright, that’s a sign of good luck!

‘Sora’ is the Japanese word for ‘sky’, and the dappled blue-and-white glaze looks just like the sky behind the silhouettes of hills or mountains. The subtle, sweeping ridges may just look like part of the design, but they’re actually cleverly positioned to make holding the tea cup more comfortable.

Please note that each piece is individually made, hence minor variations in colour, pattern and texture may occur from that shown in the photo. Microwave & dishwasher safe.
