We simply have nothing but praise regarding porcelain as a tea making material and praise as well towards the excellent styling and craftsmanship behind every item of our Ivory Porcelain series. Porcelain is lightweight, hard wearing (despite common misconceptions), offers precise tolerances and great precision in the finished products, if they are well made, of course. It is a perfectly neutral material as opposed to unfinished clays that colour the taste of the tea. When making fragrant teas like high mountain oolongs, porcelain acts like a mirror to reflect all of the aromas and taste out of the leaves. It is our experience that porcelain gives the best results and are often found in the equipage of experienced tea masters.
