This cup was designed by the Camellia Sinensis team in partnership with a ceramic workshop in Taiwan. Made of porcelain, the pure white glazed interior finish is perfect to enhance the colour of the liquor of either an entire gaiwan infuson or a shared teapot. An elegant everyday accessory with its pleasing curves and practical size.
Unique in Japan in the world of tea, the Gyokuro (Precious Dew) style is the result of a process to create shade for the tea plants for a few weeks. The deprivation of light creates more difficult conditions for the plants whose molecular structure changes to make room for sugars, amino acids and aromatic compounds. The leaves will offer a less bitter liquor.
From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this green tea is produced by pan-fried method (kamairi), instead of the conventional Japanese method of steaming. This style of transformation gives a particular balance between bitterness and sweetness, exempt from the typical astringency found in Sencha style teas.
