The highly vitrified, high-fired Jingdezhen porcelain is perfectly non-reactive and more ideally suited than any other material to reflecting the true aromatics of a tea. This cup has been thrown so thin that light glows through the porcelain. Tasting tea out of Jingdezhen porcelain is an experience worth having - the material lifts the aromatics of every brew, and the tactile feel of the porcelain is unlike Dehua, Longquan, or anything else. Perhaps this is why Jingdezhen is the material of choice for every serious tasting competition in China, the go-to material for contemplating a tea in full. This elegant cup has delicate hand painting right at the rim where a thin band is left unglazed for a more tactile taste experience.
