Beautifully designed rich brown covered mug with graceful shape and large 12 ounce capacity. This Yixing Tea mug is made from the famous Yixing dense purple clay and is high fired to hold heat well while you enjoy your tea. 5 1/2" high with lid on (to top of handle) and 4 3/4" wide (including handle). Exterior diameter 3 1/4".
As tradition maintains there is no built in infuser in this mug. With the Chinese style of brewing a few leaves are dropped into the mug, and when hot water is added the leaves unfurl and rise to the top, then slowly sink to the bottom producing a perfect brew. When finished, add a few more leaves to freshen up the cup, add more hot water, and enjoy a second cup.
