Handmade, porcelain, gas fired, tianbai "sweet white" glaze

A stunning set of tea cup and saucer in delicate white porcelain. The design of this set is inspired by the simplicity and elegance of the everyday wares in the Song Dynasty that were used in the royal court.

The tea cup boasts a delicate shiny tianbai 甜白 “sweet white” glaze. The intricately thin porcelain saucer adds a flare of sophistication. The purity and simplicity of the cup emphasizes its elegant form and enhances the experience of admiring luscious colors of tea and liquor. The cup's tall and slim form accentuate the experience of enjoying aromas and fragrances of tea. 

The tea cup and saucer were painstakingly shaped by hand. The walls are refined and thin, fitting perfectly to the curve of your lips to maximize your enjoyment of tea.
