JING makes is a high-quality handmade clear-glass teaware to be served with any kind of tea. The glass is durable and will likely last a long time if treated with care.
The shape and materials of what one uses to drink tea are very important. Part of the pleasure is in watching how the teat develops in the infuser. Although not all tea infusers and teacups are clear glass, if you are note taking, it certainly does help to be able to see the evolution in real-time. An added bonus is also in seeing the subtle differences between the first, second and third infusions as the hue becomes paler.
The wide cups permit swirling of the tea in the teacups and then the aroma travels up into your nostrils.
It is something very special to drink tea out of a proper tea set rather than out of a mug. The only improvement we would suggest to JING is that the cup handle should be lifted slightly higher, as the saucer edge pushes the cup up high rather than allowing it to sit flat on its bottom.
If you are a tea-lover or would like to start the journey of tea tasting then we highly recommend buying teaware from Jing.com. The range and quality of their selection put them among the UK’s top importers, and the prices are suitable for most budgets.
