Description

This fun Yixing tea cup features a seahorse handle and a wavy, ocean design on the outside. The Chinese believed seahorses were symbols of good luck. Yixing clay has the unique ability to absorb the tea flavor with use, so the cup seasons with your favorite tea. For that reason we recommend using this lead-free, unglazed mug with your favorite tea, but not with others. This purple clay from the Yixing region of China is considered by connoisseurs to be the best way to drink tea. 16oz (470mL) capacity.

This was the first yixing purple clay mug or pot I've ever bought. While the mug itself gets REALLY hot to the touch, this mug absolutely creates the best tea I've ever had. I use this mug for my favorite bright green oolong tea. After a few brews, the clay started to absorb the oils from the tea. Once that patina formed, the tea started to taste better and better. I will only use this mug for that one kind of oolong, but it's worth it to taste the tea after the mug starts to take on the tea oils. Not to mention the little seahorse is really stinkin' cute. It's a lovely chocolatey purple color, and the paint job adds some interest. It's a great conversation piece.

  • No Matching Teapot

Best Uses

  • Anytime

I've seen this in our local store and I really do like it but I want a matching teapot (much like my combination of the lizard cup and teapot) to buy them both at the same time to have a set. Please consider finding a teapot with the same seahorse motif and then I'll jump on it.

    Just received my Seahorse Yixing today. Love it! Seems delicate but sturdy. Great design. Can't wait to see if it actually adds a little specialness to tea after its seasoned.
