Teaware: tea cups, yunomi, chawan, Yixing - Ya-Ya Teahouse

Teaware

Teapots and tea cups can have a big impact on the aesthetics of tea drinking. Drinking your favourite tea out of a beautiful teacup will greatly enhance your enjoyment.

Tea Cups

The variety of available teacups is even greater than that of tea pots.
Whether you chose a beautiful Japanese "tea mug" (yunomi) or a Chinese thimble-sized sipping cup, an Indian chai cup or a traditional Western-style cup with saucer - your tea cup is your most direct connection to the tea you're drinking.
Does the cup feel right in your hand and on your lips? Do you appreciate its aesthetics? Does it suit the tea you're drinking?
There are many reasons to chose a specific teacup. It's a very personal choice and nobody can make that choice better than you!

Please note that some cups are available only in very limited quantities. Due to the nature of handmade pottery, some cups might differ slighty in details from the cups pictured on this page.
