Yixing Clay Aroma Tea Cup Set
Brewing tea in the Gong Fu tradition is about fully enjoying every aspect of the tea to its fullest. Aroma cups are an essential part of enjoying the tea, especially oolong tea. As its name suggests, it is used for smelling the fragrance of the tea before drinking it. Unlike the tasting cup, the aroma cup is tall and slender. Make sure the cups match with your yixing teapot or gaiwan in material and color. Made from renowned yixing zisha clay, these cups will perfectly complement your tea.
How to use:
Pour tea from the Cha Hai into the aroma cup. Cover the aroma cup with the tasting cup. Slightly pressing both cups together with the thumb and index fingers of one hand, flip the cups over so that the aroma cup is now on top. Slowly lift the aroma cup. Enjoy its smell before taking a sip of the delicious tea.
What is in the set:
1 aroma cup, 1 tasting cup, 1 wooden saucer.
0.7fl oz / 20ml
