Ge Yao Porcelain Travel Tea Set has fashion appearance and complete accessories, which is convenient for carrying while going out.
This travel set includes 1 teapot, 4 cups, 1 bamboo tea tray, and 1 leather bag. The bag contains thick foam filling to provide a safer way to hold and transport everything held inside, and the tray is made of two pieces: a bamboo top and a melamine resin dump tray, which is non-toxic, odorless, and sturdy with a high heat and corrosion resistance.
The Ge Yao teaware in this set were produced in Dehua, and are notable for their characteristic plum-green color and smooth, shiny glaze, spiderwebbed with many small Kai Pian, or cracks. Different from other traditional types of teapots, the design of the pot’s handle on the side gives it a sense of ancient rhythm and timeworn value. The cups are round and cute with a smooth, inconspicuous groove along the middle of the bodies, providing a better grip when drinking.
With extended use, the color of the tea liquid will gradually seep into the Kai Pian along the surfaces and color them, bringing out their appearance and beauty. This is a natural phenomenon of Ge Yao and is part of its beauty.
Ge Yao is one of the Chinese Five Famous Kilns: Guan, Ge, Ru, Ding, and Jun (官、哥、汝、定、钧). The source of this style had not been discovered until recently. Porcelains produced here have a dark brown body with powder-blue or beige glazes, which itself features the spiderweb Kai Pian cracks and a feature known as Zi Kou Tie Zu, wherein the upper brim of the porcelain takes on a purple-grey color while the bottom is iron-brown.
These types of porcelains are called “legendary Ge Yao”, while descendents following these characteristics produce a similar type known as just Ge Yao.
