The Aroma Cup (known as "xiang bei" in Chinese) helps to concentrate the aroma of tea, allowing you to savor the nuances of every infusion. We enjoy pairing the Aroma Cup with our Porcelain Guywan, especially when brewing richly aromatic teas that stand up well to multiple infusions like Oolong teas, Darjeelings, and Nepal Himalayan teas. Pour from your Guywan directly into the Aroma Cup. Take a few sips, and pour your next infusion before you empty the cup. This helps to keep the "root" of the infusion inside so you can keep a "gongfu" tea brewing session going for many, many infusions.
