This Bizen ware cup has a natural clay texture and a unique pattern achieved by wrapping rice straws around the surface of cup. There is an old Japanese saying “Water never spoils in Bizen ware”, which probably comes from the fact that the clay has high mineral content that helps to purify water and enhances the taste. Available in two colors, red and gray, each cup can double as a lid for the Hiiro water carafe.
