Enrich your experience of tea-drinking using this delicately chiseled tea set. It comes with four tea cups served on adorable saucers. A dainty teapot holds the heat good and doesn’t scald the skin due to the thickness of walls . The lid fits quite tight and doesn’t allow hot air to escape. The teapot is equipped with a ceramic tea strainer so the debris of tea leaves won’t penetrate into the infusion that is poured into the cups. You can keep the teapot in the tea basin though the latter is also convenient for storing used tea leaves and waste liquids during tea ceremony in Gongfu style. All items are covered with sky blue crackle glaze created with the help of so called craquelure technique when the glaze shrinks more than the clay. Note, that "cracks" have not only a decorative effect. If you continue to drink tea of the same type from the same bowl, brew will reveal more and more flavors and hues in the course of time. So the longer you enjoy the item - the richer the taste of tea.
