Made of thick porcelain for maximum quality and function. Beautiful to look at and to drink from! They are large for small cups, holding about 3.5 oz of tea.
Cup is beautiful. I enjoy seeing the leaf in the bottom of my cup as I drink tea. I use it for my green tea or my own personal blend of oolong and green. Best to use a light colored tea so you can see the leaf. The size is perfect -- not too small and big enough to hold 4 or 5 sips of tea. I prefer a smaller cup as I can continue to pour tea and keep it warm, rather than needing to slurp it all down at once. It has a nice weight and does not tip like some small cups do. Feels good in the hand. Tea stays warmer than I expected, maybe because of the weight of the cup. I love it.
Oh my gosh. This is so beautiful. I love it!
These little guys are beautiful! I had to at least have a pair for sharing.
