This hand made cup is a fine example of modern design and shape with gilded gold edge and bold deep black glazing, plus a bamboo saucer for use with or without a tea board. The saucer is painted white on the underside for a striking contrast. This Longquan porcelain has a lustrous bright white interior to show off the color of tea. The tall shape highlights aroma like fragrance cups. Xiangfu is becoming a leader in teaware design with forward-thinking modern pieces in bold color made not to replicate traditional forms, but forge a modern toolset for the way gongfu tea is practiced today.
