Change the Flavor of Sake with Three Color Glaze Kutani Sake Cup Set with Special Wood CaseRegular price $47.40
These three types of sake cups are different in shape, allowing you to enjoy the flavors of sake differently. We hope that you will find your favorite flavor in each cup, just like when tasting sake. Flat sake cup (Small) → This type of sake cup has a wide mouth that allows the sake to spread over the entire tongue, making it easier to perceive the complexity of the flavors.
The flavor as well as the aroma tends to open up from the moment of drinking with this shape, making it softer than the Tsubaki type. Tsubaki (Medium): The round shape of this sake cup also allows the sake to spread over the entire tongue and spread to all the taste buds, making it easier to perceive the complexity of the flavors.
However, sake won't taste as light as with the small cup. Spring and Autumn Tubular Cup (Large): This straight tubular cup has a narrow width that runs down to the tip of the tongue, making it easier to perceive a neutral taste rather than a sour or bitter note.
As for designs, the small type has a bunch of grapes hanging down, the medium has a camellia flower in bloom, and the large type has cherry blossoms and maple leaves symbolizing "Spring and Autumn", painted on white porcelain with simple and unremitting dyeing.
A common feeling some people who have tried it have to say about it... "I was skeptical to try it at first, but I was surprised to see how it actually changed the taste. It felt a little strange, but when I heard the explanation, I thought, 'Oh, really? And it made sense.'"
