Yixing Purple Clay Tea Cup is made from Yixing clay. It derives its unique design from the traditional style teacup used to brew tea in China, which dates back to the 15th century. This teacup is produced from clay sourced near Yixing in the eastern province of Jiangsu in China.
Meant for use with black tea and oolong teas as well as aged Puerh tea, this Chinese traditional mug teacup is marked with intricate patterns that take inspiration from dragon features. From its creatively-designed lid to its dragonhead handcrafted handle, Yixing Purple Clay Tea Cup is an amazing piece of art. This not only makes it a special cup for brewing tea, but also a decoration.
The Yixing clay used to make this cup is known to absorb flavors of tea, and thus after prolonged use, it retains the color and flavor of the tea brewed in it. After several brews, you will notice a coating of your favorite tea color forming on its interior. Over time, the flavors of your tea will become so saturated that you can use only hot water to make a brew once in a while. This means you should only brew one type of tea on your Yixing clay teapot to avoid mixing the flavors.
Using Yixing Purple Clay Dragon Tea Mug to brew tea can bring out an intense flavor and heavier aroma, thereby giving you the best tea drinking experience.
