Cultivate mindfulness by indulging in the sensory pleasures of a cup of tea. The whoosh of the burner igniting under the kettle. The smell of the leaves as you measure them into a strainer. The spa-like feeling of breathing in the steam as you wait for the leaves to steep. The warmth as you cradle your hands around the mug and take the first sip.
Yixing (pronounced yee-shing) in eastern China is known for its rich natural clay, which is considered an ideal material for enjoying tea. The porous surface of Yixing pottery absorbs the tea’s flavor over time, seasoning the surface in the way a cast-iron pan becomes seasoned.
Our set of two natural clay mugs—one dark brown and one reddish brown—comes in a silk gift box. Perfect for solo moments of contemplation or a peaceful indulgence with a friend. Tea and strainer not included.
