This cup is an intense red colour with amber reflections, evoking the autumn, or “Aki” in Japanese, from which it takes its name. The special “Gyaman” glaze gives it a stunning glassy sheen.
This porcelain cup is hand-crafted by Mr Ito and his family, who love to create new designs using traditional methods in their workshop, which has been in operation for over 100 years.
With a 13 cl capacity, the Aki cup is ideal for enjoying all types of teas and infusions.
Matched with the Aki teapot, the set makes an ideal Christmas gift for lovers of tea and Japanese craftsmanship.
Not suitable for microwave use or dishwashers. It is best to wash the Aki cup by hand to avoid damaging the paint.
