This is a fine made dark old ceramic small teapot set that includes a pot and four matching cups. The matte outsides of the pot and cups are ringed in diffuse earthen shades of shadowy loam brown, dark golden tan, and warm subdued pink. In contrast, the insides are glazed in a muted light eggshell blue with dark speckles. The non-porous glaze of the insides allows this tea set to be used for any kind of tea. The unusual glazes make this a highly versatile and beautiful ceramic set.

The simple, straight lines of this tea set allows its stunning coloring to shine without distraction. The wide-mouthed hat shaped cups are easy to hold. A rosewood bead adorns the knob of the pot’s lid, and the wire-wrapped overhead metal handle provides a secure grip and protection from the heat. The strainer behind the pot’s spout conveniently holds tea leaves inside while pouring tea. With its small pot, this set is particularly good for teas that are poured out quickly, like wulong or puer. It is also excellent for tea tastings.
