This teacup is designed with a "Tokusa" pattern drawn by hand with a broom-like brush to make the thin blue lines centering to the middle of the cup.

The name "sorisencha" is a word unique to the Hasami area used to describe tea cups. "Sori" means that the mouth of the cup has an outward rim and "sencha" is a local Hasami expression used to describe short tea cups with a wide opening. 

This cup is light and easy to hold. And the thin porcelain with the outward rim gives a comforting touch to the mouth. 

The "Tokusa" series by the Hasami ware company Fukuhou Kiln was first produced in 1976. Since then, it has become a long selling standard item. The "Tokusa" is a pattern of stripes which has been used as a pattern for tableware since ancient times and is a familiar pattern in Japan. 

The "Tokusa" series has a variety of items for the dining table, such as plates in different sizes, rice bowls, teacups, and Sake cups. We hope you will enjoy setting your table with matching items from the "Tokusa" series.
