Handmade Silver Cup 70ml - Dark Thick Texture from Crimson Lotus Tea

Handmade Silver Cup 70ml - Dark Thick Texture

These cups have a thick dark glaze on them that has a sheen like an oil spill. These are solid cups. They have a heavy feel in the hand. These have been lined by hand with fine silver in Yunnan by local silversmiths. Drinking your tea in silver is a true pleasure. The silver reflects light and makes your tea vibrant in color; it almost glows. There is a noticeable difference in the taste as well.

These teacups hold 70ml and measure 3.14” wide by 1.75” tall (8cm x 4.5cm).

This product is a single cup. If you want more you need to purchase multiple items.

These are unique and the item that arrives may differ slightly in texture and appearance from those pictured.

The pictures do not do this cup justice. Period. It’s beautiful, well made, the silver shines so bright and feels really good on my upper lip. I got this for sipping shou while studying. The cup has some serious substance, thick and heavy, perfect for holding while contemplating late into the night. It retains heat very well. So well, I have to let the cup sit for a few minutes so I don’t scorch my widdle fingahs. But I don’t see the heat retention as a negative. What this means to me is that I’m in no rush to drink the brew before it cools. I did a side-by-side comparison in this cup and an unglazed clay cup with several steeps of some lower-grade shou that was brewed in a clay gaiwan. The silver cup seemed to neutralize the muddy qualities I found present in the clay cup’s brew. I’ll have to try some other shou between the two cups to see if that holds true.

I am super stoked. Totally worth it. Thanks Crimson Lotus.
