Traditional Yamanaka Nuri lacquer craft

This style of Yamanaka Nuri lacquer ware Yunomi is quite rare and exceptional, even in Japan. The weight is lighter than pottery or porcelain, and the mouth and hand feel is uniquely soft. The wood grain and warmth of the wood create a relaxing atmosphere.

TAMAGO means egg, and TSUTSU GATA means pillbox-style in Japanese. TAMAGO has a unique relaxing effect, and TSUTSU GATA is a steady form. Both styles have a finished base.

The lacquered wood Yumoni is crafted following Japanese tradition. The wood is from the SAKURA Japanese cherry tree. Wood grain or combination of center core and edge of cherry tree is quite beautiful. The simple, natural feel of cherry tree wood has a relaxing effect.
These Yunomi are heat-resistant and may be used for boiling water or cool water.

These Yunomi are suitable not only to enjoy the subtle flavor of high quality Japanese tea, but also to enjoy various drinks, for example, Japanese iced tea, fruit smoothie, coffee, wine or sake. It depends upon your vision and preference.

Specially packaged in a carton box.
Lead-free. Made in Japan.
