A piece of fine tea ware from Jun Yao kiln, this handmade brushstroke purple ceramic cup has a dazzling radiating starburst pattern in the bowl of the cup. The cup’s rim is a warm light brown. The center of the cup is glazed in a bright, variably translucent blue that resembles water bubbling up from a spring. From the core, the blue radiates out toward the edges of the cup in a thin brushstroke pattern. The streaks of blue against the dark background glaze create a layered color with a bright purple cast along the walls of the cup.

We suggest only pouring enough tea into this large cup to fill it halfway. Its wide bowl design helps to cool down hot tea quickly when poured in a thin layer. This is good for any tea that is brewed boiling hot, such as wulong or puer. Gaze into the blooming starburst in the bottom of your cup while enjoying the aroma of the steam that curls up from the wide surface area of the cooling tea.
