The leaning hinoki cypress sake cup is elegant Japanese design at its finest. The tilted cup looks ready to topple, but the thick base ensures it stays put.
The cup is hand-crafted from Japanese cypress, which is regarded as a great luxury in Japan. It has a delicate, woody fragrance, and is said to complement the flavour of traditionally brewed sakes that are aged in cedarwood casks.
When drinking sake from cypress cups, first gently inhale the aroma of the sake mingled with the cypress wood. Then take a small sip, letting the sake linger on your tongue before swallowing.
Japanese cypress, or hinoki, contains an aromatic essential oil. As well as being fragrant, it has natural anti-bacterial properties. To care for your cypress cup, wipe with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly. If it needs washing, hand wash only under running water. Do not use soap or detergent. Towel-dry as much as possible, then leave to air dry completely and store in a dark, dry place.
The leaning hinoki cypress sake cup is a perfect addition to the leaning hinoki cypress sake set.
