Detailed Description

This authentic Yixing Chinese tea mug holds 15oz (443ml) of your favorite tea. A dragon shaped handle graces this delightful mug. The comfortably sized handle and unglazed surface makes this cup a delight to hold in the hand.

Yixing tea ware is special - unglazed made from clay found only in a particular area of China - these mugs are made from the same clay as is used to make the famous Yixing teapots. This mug is a contemporary styled version of more traditional Chinese tea mugs.

Traditional Yixing tea ware has origins dating back to the Sung Dynasty (960 - 1279). Their beautiful earthy tones and delicate beauty flourished and matured in the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1573 - 1911). Along with the earliest tea shipments to Europe came distinctive red earthenware teapots, initiating a tea drinking tradition that continues today.

The soft colors come entirely from the different clays found in Yixing which is located in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu, no glazes are used. The clay absorbs the delicate flavors of the tea and the mug becomes more seasoned with each use. It is recommended that only one type of tea be used in each mug and soap not be used to clean the pot after each use. Simply rinse out the mug and allow to air dry.
