I am Kaoru, a green tea cup. Lately I’ve been going green… just looking out for the next generation.
I used to wonder why Japanese teacups were so small until I was served the best sencha tea I’ve ever had in a cup with a capacity of no more than two ounces. Since then, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect tea cup and have found it in the Kaoru porcelain cup. Its smaller size actually makes tea taste better by encouraging you to brew the loose-leaf tea in multiple steeps in a similarly small teapot. The taste is not too bitter and each steep has a unique depth of flavor. Each sip is warm with a small cup and allows one teapot to be shared amongst a few people.
