Kumidashi 汲み出し

The Kumidashi is a short, light, handle-free teacup traditionally used to serve Sencha during Senchadō: the Japanese leaf tea ceremony (as opposed to Sadō for matcha powdered green tea). Kumidashi with mouths that spread outwards are particularly suitable for high-grade teas as the shape helps to amplify the aroma. Often sold in sets of five, Kumidashi are the choice of teacup when entertaining guests.

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 neighbouring Aichi prefecture, which was the location of one of the legendary Six Ancient Kilns or Rokkoyō (六古窯) of Japan. A variety of styles and glazing techniques were produced in Mino following the Chadō tea ceremony boom in the Momoyama period (1573–1615), including pale yellow Ki-Seto, jet black Seto-guro, off-white Shino and green/black Oribe wares.
