Meoto Yunomi

Popular wedding gifts, Meoto or “husband and wife” Yunomi are a pair of matching Japanese teacups where one is often smaller that the other and/or has a different colour scheme of the same design. The tall, cylindrical Yunomi is typically made of ceramic and without a handle, ideal for daily, casual drinking of all types of tea (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 (175°F), the Yunomi should not be too hot to handle, and will provide extra warmth to the hands during the colder months. For this reason, teas 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 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.
