Yanyun teacups 岩韵杯 is a specially curated batch of tea cups by KZ & Kangiiten, specially for the appreciation of Wuyi Yancha or Dancong to its very best details. Having extensively tested a wide range of glazes, cups, different sizes, shapes, and materials, we have settled in on these to be one of the loveliest cups we have ever used for appreciating tea, it is thick at the base, gradually thinning out to the rim, offering the optimal heat dissipation for savouring tea directly from it, when half to two thirds filled. We recommend half filling so that one can perceive the fragance floating on the top of the tea when focussed by the cup's tall shape. The optimal internal surface area of the cups, will also allow the 杯底香, or the lingering fragrance of an empty cup to be appreciated. The sharp rim of the cup, presents a delicate feel on the lips and tongue, with a perfect curvature for tea liquid to cross the cup, into our mouths elegantly. We very highly recommend these cups for Yancha, Dancong and much more, whether you get it from us or from other sources!!
