This has been my go-to Ru Yao cup over the past couple of years, so much so that we decided to bring some in for you!. It has a square base design moving to a circular rim which makes it so great to hold in the hands. The drinking edge and shape is super easy sipping and it is stable on its base to avoid spills.

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 Yixing clay and glass which makes it a universal tea cup.

You can buy a matching Ru Yao Gong Dao Bei too.
