Angel's Comment:

Aroma cup is one of the most important teaware while drinking tea with highly rich fragrance, like Oolong tea

Tasting cup is what you pour the brewed tea into from your fair cup to actually drink the brewed tea, the western equivalent would be the teacup, although Pinming cups are much smaller, shallow and thin. Remember, brewing tea Gongfu style is about fully enjoying every aspect of the tea to the fullest.
Aroma cup is used for smelling the fragrance of tea, especially for oolong tea. The appearance of aroma cup is taller and more slender than tasting cup. Usually, one aroma cup should be matched with a tasting cup which of the same material and color. Of course, a cup saucer is needed if you are a tea lover with careful attention to the details.
This Zisha Clay Aroma Tea Cup includes one tasting cup and one aroma cup. You can choose from the three colors the one that can match your Zisha teapot.

Zhu Ni(朱泥): Bright brick-red color.

Zhu Ni with white glaze(朱泥白釉): Brick-red appearance with white-glazed inner wall.

Zi Ni(紫泥): Dark brownish-red (dark red) color.
