KATA teacups and saucers are made using a special technique that produces an eggshell porcelain which is light and thin like paper. The thinness allows light to pass through, and the bottom has a cut-out in the shape of a tea flower.
The cups have a hemispherical shape that allows the color of the tea to be seen clearly and pairs well with the teapot, adding to the experience of drinking tea.
"Tenge" means "heavenly flower" in Japanese. The matte white porcelain is adorned with a pattern of overlapping circles that resembles lace and gives a sense of volume to the design.
