We're offering two Celadon Tea Cups and an Art Deco Teapot together in this special bundle.
Celadon Tea Cup (2 cups)
Dimensions: 8cm diameter; 4.5cm tall
Our Celadon Tea Cup has a simple, majestic design of a tea cup has a soft feel and semi-transparent glaze that reveals the sandstone ceramic underneath. It's substantial size of 100ml capacity offers function as well as a pleasant experience to hold in your hand. The glaze will slowly crackle and become naturally "tea stained" with prolonged use — increasing its aesthetic quality.
This cup is the perfect compliment to our Art Deco Teapot! It's the same type of glaze (although coloration may vary slightly), and the tea cup is exactly half the capacity of the teapot. So it's just right for "tea for two" !
Art Deco Teapot
The Art Deco Teapot has a classic light green celadon type glaze that is semi-transparent, and will develop a classic crackle with use over time. The sand colored ceramic body is visible at the ridges in the decorative design of the teapot, as well as its rim. It has a glazed interior. Only the inner lid and the "feet" of the teapot are unglazed. Celadon is known to retain heat well, which makes it particularly suitable for hardier and tightly rolled tea types. We find that teapots with more spherical ( as opposed wide, squat) body shapes offer optimal brewing results.
