A portion of the outside of each cup is intentionally left unglazed to showcase the natural dark clay, its ribbed texture contrasting with the matte-silken smoothness of the drip glaze. The ethereal moonlight white glaze has lightly colored cracks throughout and occasional splashes of colored glaze as an accent in spots of layered blue-green and deep crimson.

The cup has tall, straight sides that taper to a small foot at the base and help concentrate the aroma of the tea while drinking it. It is very comfortable to hold as your hand wraps around the taller sides of the cup. The thickness of the glaze adds a nice weight to the cup.

This cup also comes in a deep blue-green style in our Ge Kiln Tall Green Drip Glaze Ceramic Teacup.

The opaque pale white glaze has a matte finish that is silky-smooth to the touch and is reminiscent of the glaze that the Ru Kiln was known for using. Each cup is unique, and each cup’s glaze has lightly colored hairline cracks throughout. The Ru Kiln of the Song Dynasty (960–162) was one of the five great kilns (五大名窯), along with the Ge Kiln (哥窯), Guan Kiln (官窯), Ding Kiln (定窯), and Jun Kiln (均窑).
