Tea Ave Aroma Cup Set from Tea Ave

Tea Ave Aroma Cup Set

Here at Tea Ave, we think aroma is pretty important. Following the traditional Taiwanese tea-serving ritual, the aroma cup is used to smell the tea before tasting it, enhancing the sensory experience and allowing the tea drinker to better explore the nuances and fragrance notes of his or her tea. Good-quality teas can often be identified by their rich, strong scent.

The Tea Ave Aroma Cup Set comes with an aroma porcelain cup, a sipping cup, and a beautiful, durable bamboo tray. To use the aroma cup set, fill both the aroma cup and the sipping cup with hot water and then empty. Next, pour your prepared tea into the aroma cup first, and then into the sipping cup. The fragrance of a high-quality oolong should linger vividly in the aroma cup. The tall, narrow shape of the cup works to capture and funnel the oolong’s fragrance.

Works beautifully with any of our oolongs, especially teas with a vivid aroma, such as Wenshan Baochung.

60ml/2oz capacity.

I finally had a chance to sit down for a gong fu session with one of my Tea Ave samples, and what better opportunity to try out this aroma cup set that Tea Ave so generously provided as part of their free sample sets.

Everything about this is beautiful and stylish.

The aroma cup and tea cup are made from a medium thickness porcelain that is glazed with a smooth, creamy white glaze. Very minimalist and beautiful. The aroma cup does a wonderful job of amplifying and funnelling the fragrance of the tea, and the tea cup is a lovely size for sipping (about 2oz).

The set comes with a lovely oval tray made from oak. The tray is made from a single piece of wood, has a small lip around it and the Tea Ave logo embossed on the underside. It perfectly holds the aroma and tea cups.

The set also came beautifully packaged, in a box that’s worth keeping for storage. The cups are safely nestled in foam, and the tray sits below the cups. The box is cardboard wrapped in texture white paper or fabric, with the Tea Ave logo embossed in gold on the top. It has a magnet closure.

Everything about this set, from the presentation, to the quality and function, is wonderful. The cups are also durable, as I discovered when I knocked my aroma cup off the coffee table and onto my hardwood floor with no damage.

Tea Ave has out done themselves, and this set will be a regular part of my gong fu tea ritual.

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
