Shallow and round, the Kumidashi shaped teacup is traditionally used for offering Sencha green tea when welcoming guests to a Japanese tea ceremony.
The AZMAYA Kumidashi Teacup is made from select Amakusa pottery stone found in the Kumamoto prefecture. Baked in the kiln of Hasami Town in Nagasaki prefecture, the artisans are careful not to refine the material too much leaving each cup with a beautiful & natural texture.
The rounded form feels incredibly comfortable in your hand with a superbly curved rim that receives the lips softly. The perfected combination of simple glaze and warm design enhances both colour and flavour of your preferred tea.
AZMAYA Copper Tea Saucer is sold separately.

Making the best use of skilled Japanese craftsmanship, Azmaya collaborates with artisans, designers, and small local manufactures to revive an old Japanese aesthetic sense.
From beautifully crafted tableware and functionally calculated kitchenware, their specialized housewares are made with a consistent commitment to using traditional techniques and only the highest quality materials found in Japan.
While respecting the traditions of Japanese craftwork, Azmaya creates something new by modifying the design to match tested Japanese “tools” with the present age. The collection features minimalist design reflecting the high level of skill and superior techniques of the artisans today.
