Suitable for steeping either coffee or tea, our Japanese tea cups come in a variety of designs, from the whimsical to the classical. This cup depicts the famous Great Wave Off Kanagawa, the first of the Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji, by the legendary woodblock printer Hokusai. The titular great wave dominates the foreground of the piece, with Mt. Fuji a distant white peak in the background. It beckons like a beacon of safety to the storm-tossed fishermen trapped by the wave.
Covered tea cups such as this have a long history, going back centuries – even in the past, people wanted to keep their hot drinks hot! The handle is a more modern innovation, but we’re sure you will appreciate that it keeps your fingers safe from that hot drink.
