Yunomi teacups are the most basic, widespread kind of teacup, and are used for day-to-day tea drinking. Overall, they hold around six ounces of tea and are taller and heavier than the bowl-shaped Sencha teacup. Yunomi teacups are made with a variety of pottery methods, ranging from the iron-glazed black Seto method to the white-glazed Shino method; countless artisans create countless different designs, all hearkening as far back as the 16th century, if not more.
Yunomi cups are taller than they are wide (unlike the Sencha teacup) but are also used in daily tea drinking. Examples of our Yunomi teacups include the vivid Green Maki, and the Nanban Uzu, with its stark spiral pattern.
