The Glazed Purion Tea cup is made by the artisans at Lin's Ceramics Studio in Taiwan. This cup is made from a special type of unglazed clay called Purion, which is semi-porous and will absorb the essence of tea over time. The exterior is hand glazed with unique imprints etched in gold. Soft to the touch, the smooth exterior promotes a precious tea drinking experience. Unglazed and semi-porous clay tea cups and teapots are prized in Chinese tea culture for their ability to gracefully age and develop a patina over time. After several years of use, the patina will add depth and dimension to the tea brewed inside. We highly recommend selecting a single style of tea to enjoy in your Glazed Purion Cup, and seasoning the cup with that style of tea. We recommend pure teas only. Darker oolong teas like Iron Goddess of Mercy or Ruby Oolong are excellent choices. Pu-erh is another great style of tea to drink from Purion clay tea cups.
