Yunomi — everyday tea cups

These are images of a Japanese style teacup called a “Yunomi” which I believe I read somewhere translates into “hot water cup” — Here’s a clip from wikipedia…A yunomi (Japanese: 湯のみ) is a form of teacup, typically made from a ceramic material, being taller than wide, with a trimmed or turned foot. Unlike the more formal chawan tea bowl which is used during the Japanese tea ceremony, the yunomi is made for daily (or informal) tea drinking.
