Jianzhan is the original custom teaware. With a history nearly a thousand years old this gorgeous glazed clay teaware from Fujian was designed exclusively for drinking tea. The iron rich glaze creates unique patterns. No two are ever the same. The long history of this teaware is truly fascinating.

There is a magic that happens with tea in these cups. The iron content works to soften the water and enhance the experience. Some people claim these cups cheat; the difference can be that noticeable. When we're analyzing teas for purchase we can't use these cups. They make everything taste better. 

Jianzhan tea cups are in general thicker and heavier than other clay cups. These are no exception. These cups are dense and feel great in the hand. They are high fired and made from natural glazes. They will be an amazing addition to your tea ware collection!

This cup was wood fired. Wood firing is an unreliable process that can create amazing texture in the few pieces that survive. The glaze used in this piece was blended by hand. This is an exceptional cup. This tea cup holds 90ml and measures 9cm Wide ( 3.6" ) x 5cm Tall ( 2” ). The pattern is called 'Youdi' ( 油滴盏 ), this means oil drop. Yaobian ( 窑变 ) refers to the special colors from the kiln firing. Tianmu ( 天目 ), means 'Eye of Heaven', and refers to the density of pattern when looking directly into the cup. It's like seeing an eye in the sky.

This cup is unique. You will get the one pictured. This tea cup comes with a carrying bag.
