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