Yunomi 湯のみ

Literally a “utensil for drinking hot water,” the Yunomi is a tall, cylindrical Japanese teacup that is typically made of ceramic and does not have a handle. It is ideal for everyday use for all types of teas – with the exception of Matcha, which is best served in a Chawan tea bowl. Please use both hands when drinking from a Yunomi: one hand around the cup to hold it, and the other underneath to support. Since Japanese teas are served at temperatures below 80°C the Yunomi should not be too hot to handle, and will provide extra warmth to the hands during colder months. For this reason, Japanese teas that are served at higher temperatures, such as Hojicha, Genmaicha, and Bancha are particularly recommended for Yunomi.

Mino-yaki 美濃焼

Produced in the historic Mino province, present-day Gifu prefecture, Mino-yaki has a long ceramic history dating back to the 11th century, and since the 19th century has specialised in porcelain for everyday crockery. Mino ceramic production developed in correlation with that of Seto, in the neighbouring Aichi prefecture, which was the location of one of the legendary Six Ancient Kilns of Japan. A variety of styles and glazing techniques were produced in Mino following the Japanese tea ceremony or Chanoyu boom in the Momoyama period (1573–1615), including yellow Kiseto, black Setoguro and Tenmoku glazes, as well as Shino and Oribe wares.
