This teacup matches the Small Suet Jade Porcelain Gaiwan, and together they make a set with everything you need for a gongfu tea session. In traditional Chaozhou-style gongfu service, tea is served from the gaiwan into three small tasting cups.

Suet jade porcelain has a richness to its color that conveys warmth with its light cream tint. It uses a special glaze recipe that is fired at a very high temperature in the kiln. The result is an unusual shade of white that is soft instead of stark and a finish that is incredibly smooth and buttery-soft to the touch.
