Natsume

Natsume

It might be a bit confusing, but the name Natsume is originally the name of natsume or jujube fruit. Since what we call Natsume today looks like the fruit, we call them Natsume. It was not until the 16th century when the use of Natusme spread especially amongst tea masters including Sen no Rikyu. The characteristic feature of Natsume of those days was the simple black decoration. This is partly because Sen no Rikyu attached a great deal of importance to the sense of “wabi”, a Japanese aesthetic. Most Natsume these days, however, have artistically sprinkled picture on the surface.
