The Taihaku teacup is made of a clear white porcelain, and is the perfect size for serving multiple infusions of tea. Most guywans will serve two Taihaku cups, while most Japanese kyusu will serve four or five Taihaku cups.

I own many tea cups, mostly Japanese, but most of them are too large to use with a gaiwan. Many of the Chinese cups are too small. These were a perfect match for several medium sized gaiwans I use regularly. I have several pairs of excellent handmade cups for oolong tea but needed a pair of relatively thin, white porcelain cups for green tea. These worked perfectly. I thought they might be unstable and tip over easily due to their narrow bottom and wide top, but they're very stable. They fit perfectly int he hand and the pure white porcelain is perfect for seeing the true color of the tea.
