This cup’s design is very simple and at the same time very modern. The matt black colour of Echizen lacquer gives it a very classy touch.
It is a piece of Japanese fine craftsmanship entirely handmade by Echizen artisans in Fukui Prefecture. The very fine, light, untreated chestnut wood core was first hardened with a coating of lacquer, and then two layers of lacquer were applied and polished. (Both the wood and lacquer are from Japan.)
Various alcohols, iced tea or coffee: the 150 ml (2.7 oz) capacity of this cup makes it completely versatile.
With warm liquid, the odor of lacquer comes out, but over time it disappears, and this lacquer ware then becomes an elegant cup for all kinds of tea, and for coffee too.


-Before use, wash the cup in warm water, dry it with a very soft cloth, and then leave the cup in a dark, well-aired place for several days. The lacquer smell will disappear completely.
However, with a warm drink, such as tea or coffee, the smell of lacquer will come out again, though it will gradually disappear over time.
-Wash with water and possibly a little dish washing liquid.
-Never rub it with anything abrasive!
-Do not put it in the dishwasher.
-Do not put it on the stove or in the microwave.
