The label shows that these are “Mino-yaki” cups. Mino-yaki is a type of ceramic that is made in Gifu Prefecture and surrounding areas. Mino-yaki tableware’s functionality and beauty brings out the deliciousness in dishes served in it.

These cups are both microwave and dishwasher-safe. They should not come in contact with direct heat or be put in the oven.

Taking a Break with Green Tea!

I immediately tried the cups out with some warm green tea. They’re the perfect size and thickness.
It really is nicer to drink green tea out of a teacup rather than a coffee cup after all!

I paired the tea with some non-branded soy milk biscuits!

Japanese sweets and rice crackers are good too, but western-style sweets go well with green tea as well!

By the way, these soy milk biscuits are 120 yen for 70 grams. They also have added calcium. They’re delicious and simply flavored!
