Yunomi

Yunomi is a vertical, cylindrical teacup. Basically, it is used for drinking Japanese tea by yourself. Because of its large capacity, the area where the tea touches the air is small, and the tea does not get cold easily. It is also suitable when you want to drink a lot of bancha or hojicha. In sushi restaurants, tea is traditionally served in a yunomi.
