Our latest in the Ru Yao range of cups has a low profile for ultimate stability and six rims which curve beautifully on the lips for easy drinking. The soft, vertical ridges on the sides of the cup add texture and interest in the hands.
Ru Yao - The porcelain is Ru Yao which originated from Henan province in the Song Dynasty (about 1000 years ago). The technique uses iron to create a glaze with a glimmering lustre which will continue to shine. The firing process creates fine cracks in the glaze which will season with tea over repeated use and reveal a golden brown craquelure.
Colour - The blue green celadon colour is the perfect companion to clay and glass which makes it a universal tea cup.
You can buy a matching Ru Yao Gong Dao Bei too.
