Adding this here to make sure the review is seen by anyone interested. This is also listed under the heading Aroma Cup Set.

We have listed tea ware in the past and I think this deserves a review!

I had fondled a set like this at a store about two hours from my home, and thought about getting it. Then Teaave sent one for reviewers to use with their teas. Their price is almost identical to the one I looked at, and it appears to be the very same set.

Using the aroma cup makes such a difference in your tea tasting experience. A lot of people drink tea at my house, and they are often tea newbies who are wanting to learn more, to experience something new and special. This set really makes it a “Wow” experience. People love watching the ceremony of pouring, capping, then flipping the cups, rolling the tall scent cup in their hands and wafting in some air, and then passing it around and sharing what nuances and notes they find.

I started out using it with the oolongs they sent to me, and then started using it for…puerh! Yes, it is fabulous with many types and tea and SO MUCH FUN. We tea lovers don’t just drink tea, we experience it as fully as possible – color, taste, aroma. This set adds a whole new dimension to the enjoyment and the friendly sharing and ceremony.

The tray is such a nice touch, and I love that they had their name put on the bottom instead of the top. It seems more tasteful to me. I actually used the tray yesterday to hold some small serving utensils when we were tasting cheese. I plan to add their Al Fresco Tray to my tea ware collection soon.

This is such a wonderful cup set! The Al Fresco Tray looks great as well.

I agree that this is a lovely set. I was really surprised when Tea Ave sent it to me. I now use this cup daily to drink tea from when I’m brewing Gongfu style. I don’t use the aroma cup every time, but I do love both cups, and the tray is definitely a nice touch, and like you said, can serve many purposes. I use it with other cup sets I have as well. :3

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
