What is an aroma cup, and how do you use it?

Aroma cups – also known as fragrance cups, or wen xiang bei – are simply designed to capture a tea’s aroma to make it easier to appreciate your brew’s fragrance.  Their unique shape makes them ideal for appreciating especially aromatic teas, which makes them popular to use with Anxi Tieguanyin and rolled oolong teas.

How to Use Aroma Cups

Pour your tea into the tall aroma cup.

Take the paired sipping cup, and place it upside-down on top of the aroma cup.


This next step can be a little tricky to master, but is always fun to share with friends: flipping the aroma cup!  

Carefully pick up the aroma cup and sipping cup. Grip both together firmly, and then flip the whole thing over in one smooth, fluid motion.


Flip Tip: f you’re not feeling confident, try practicing first with room temperature water until you feel comfortable.

You can also simply pour tea from the tall aroma cup into your sipping cup. 


Finally, lift the aroma cup up to allow the tea to pour into the sipping cup.  With the tea poured out, the fragrance of your brew lingers and stays behind in the aroma cup.


The Xiangfu Workshop simple bamboo tea tray can be used either as a tea boat for modern gongfu style or as a small capacity tea tray.

Empty this board of all tea and leaves after use, and allow the board dry completely between sessions.

Do not leave wet overnight. Leaving boards wet for extended periods of time can cause wood to warp or crack, and standing water may become unhygienic.

Do not overfill the board or leave standing water on the tray for extended periods of time.

Hand wash with warm, soapy water and a gentle sponge, then air dry completely or wipe dry with a soft cloth.
