The 150ml standard taster’s mug is a most indispensable tool for traders, teashop owners and serious connoisseurs. Its smaller size lessens considerably unnecessary wastage, especially when tasting for finer, and thereby more expensive, teas.
We have this one handmade in Dehua, where the highly acclaimed white porcelain, Blanc de chine originated.
Xanadu features a receptacle for round Yixing teapots for complete decantation of each round of infusion. Even if you do not use the Yixing pot, you will still find the wider opening a most convenient design for ease of use. A smart adaptation basing on a classic chahai feature.
