The Asagao teacup goes perfectly with the Shiboridashi, but can also be used separately, for any tea tasting. Its name comes from its original form, which evokes convolvulus (asagao in Japanese), a delicate flower that is emblematic of Japanese culture.
With its flared shape, which releases the aromatic notes of tea during tasting, this cup combines functionality and design.
Its white porcelain perfectly restores all the aromatic notes, while highlighting the color of the liquor. Porcelain is a type of ceramic particularly known for distributing heat evenly, which allows optimal tasting, especially for green teas.
