Thank you very much for writing to us.
The Bamboo hat-shaped tea cup is made of Kaolin. More information about this Kaolin, you can click this link to see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaolinite.
The cups are glazed, but it does not contain lead or cadmium. The paintings inside the tea cups are made by in-glaze color at an high temperature of 1300℃. So it is safe for us to drinking teas with these cups.
