  • Well made a great tasting cup in the green colour

    by Tasting cups on 10th of August

    These Yixing tasting cups were small and very attractive.The cups are ideal for tasting Chinese Tea and Japanese Tea.

  • Brilliant!

    by Kirsty on 12th of August

    Love these little tasting cups! Look great and function well.

  • Really lovely

    by Lauren on 22nd of April

    Really lovely cups, they are the perfect size with a yixing or similar size teapot. They are beautifully made and the three colours make a charming set. I could also see them being used as elegant dinnerware to hold small appetizers or dipping sauces.

  • Fantastic Tea Cups

    by Arthur on 27th of February

    These are wonderful tea cups - beautiful, functional, and very well made. It's a shame the 'Set of 3' function doesn't seem to work, but it's only an extra 50p to buy them all separately - and it's well worth it!

  • Artwork!

    by gaz on 21st of January

    These tasting cups are a sight to behold. I ordered the Green and the glaze is more of a jade green with brown accents. Can not recommend these highly enough. I use this cup with my yixing teapot and some pu erh tea - absolute bliss!
