Celadon Tea Cup Geyao Kiln Longquan Qing Ci Handcrafted
This high quality celadon cup is from Geyao Kiln, Longquan, Zhejiang province. Longquan Geyao kiln is one of the five most famous kilns in ancient China, dating from the Song dynasty, about 12th centuries AD. It has a high reputation for its glaze and its surface “crackle” lines. The glazed surface has tiny intersecting crackles, big and small. Those crackles will gradually appear as a more pronounced nest of lines after a period of use. Celadon cups are heavy compared to Jingdezhen porcelain cups. The color, mostly green, of the celadon cups will slightly impact the color of your tea, and especially makes green tea appear as a deeper, fresher green. Celadon tea cups will also enhance the flavor and taste of your tea.
The creaminess, radiance, richness, and smoothness of the glaze on this cup typifies high quality celadon. This tea cup is suited for all teas, especially for oolong and puerh tea. It will surely enhance your tea drinking experience.
