Traditional Sake cup made with 100% Tin.
Known as the most expensive metal after gold and silver.
Tin is very malleable and bendable.
Though tin resembles silver in its whiteness, it does not rust for tarnish easily.
Also, pure tin is significantly antibacterial and safe for serving foods.
In Japan, it has been said that tin removes the bitterness from Japanese Sake as well as other beverages.
