HANA SOROE means that the flowers are all arranged in Japanese. There are twelve tea cups in this series. This Yunomi has a unique shape. We call this Yunomi's shape 'Tama-Yunomi'. 'Tama' means 'ball' in Japanese. You may think this Yunomi is not easy to use to drink green tea, but once you try this Yunomi, you'll know it is really quite comfortable, pleasant and lovely to hold in your hands.
SHARA means stewartia flower in Japanese, also known as the summer camellia. The pure white summer camellia with lush green leaves elegantly blooms on the teacup. The yellow color of the stamen in the center is well reflected on the white petals.
Two SHARA summer camellia flowers in full bloom are painted on this Yunomi teacup brilliantly and sophisticatedly. The white color of the petals is described with a refined touch, and the use of golden color also contributes to the elegance of the SHARA flowers. The detailed description of the stamen and contours of the flower petals makes them even more brilliant. Both inside and outside white color is also finished with brush lines, which create the WABI SABI atmosphere. A little rough clay modestly adds accent.
Above factors make graceful and sophisticated aura this tea cup, and turn to be an elegant high-grade tea cup.
Once you pour green tea into this tea cup, the contrast between green color and white color tells you that the spring is around the corner. Please enjoy drinking our genuine Japanese green tea with Japanese spring scenery.
