First things first – this is a gorgeous cup. I love African rosewood and the silver being almost white is such a perfect complement to the wood color. It feels good to hold and the wood keeps the silver from burning my fingers.

I used this for the first time tonight with a Dian Hong. I compared an unglazed clay cup and the silver rosewood cup and a Crimson Lotus silver cup. I wouldn’t have noticed if not doing it side by side like this but there is definitely a moderating influence that this cup exerts on at least this tea. It sat in the pot for a bit longer than desirable. In the unglazed clay cup, it was pretty harsh. It was a bit more mellow in the CL silver cup but in this one it was noticeably smoother and the bitter edges seemed to fade.

I am extremely curious to experiment with other teas in this cup now.

So neat! I see these are out of stock now. Sad! I have a silver teapot and I agree – it does something special.

How do you get it to let you review teaware without saying the word “drank”?

Those are quite possibly the best looking tea cups I have ever seen. I am jealous.
