Angel's Comment:

Zisha Clay Aroma Tea Cup Set is the preferred teaware for Chinese traditional Gongfu tea ceremony, which is very suitable for oolong tea lovers and aficionados.

A tasting cup is the equivalent of the western tea cup, in that the brewed tea is poured into this vessel for drinking - the main difference is that Pinming cups, the tasting cups, are usually smaller and thinner. An important thing to remember in this regard is that Gongfu style brewing focuses on enjoying each and every aspect of the tea to the fullest.
The aroma cup, however, is intended to be used to absorb the fragrance of the tea, with oolong in particular. This cup is taller and more slender than the tasting cup; usually, an aroma cup and tasting cup should be made of the same material and color.
Three options are offered: Zhu Ni, bright brick-red in color; Zhu Ni with white glaze; and Zi Ni, which is a darker brownish-red.

The cup saucer is used for carrying the tasting and aroma cups.

 

Each piece of this set is made from pure clay and solid wood, both superior in quality. The white glaze is natural and comfortable, with the workmanship on every part elegant and elaborate.

Step 4: Lift the aroma cup up off of the now full tasting cup, and wait until all of the tea liquid drips out of it. Step 5:Holding the aroma cup in both hands, lift it to your nose and slowly inhale the fragrance. Rolling the cup gently back and forth between your hands can help with this.
