The winter solstice, known as Touji in Japan, inspired this ceramic cup with a deep black background.
Each Touji cup is handcrafted in Japan and is one-of-a-kind: the temperature of the kiln and the ambient air, as well as the position of the cup in the kiln, affect the final appearance of the ochre and blue glazes. This gives each cup its own color gradient.
It has a 4oz (12cl) capacity and is ideal for sampling high-quality teas and infusions.
The set, designed to go with the Touji teapot, is an ideal holiday seasonal gift for tea lovers.
