Teavana Blue Cherry Blossom Yixing Tea Set

This lovely Chinese Yixing tea set is handmade with an intricate cherry blossom design. Cherry blossoms represent spring and new beginnings, so it’s a really nice touch. The set includes 2 cups and a strainer basket, as well as the pot, of course. The pot is large enough to make up to 16 oz of tea. All of the pieces are ceramic. The material does absorb the flavors of the teas brewed within it, which may be a good or a bad thing depending on your tea drinking preferences. Overall this is one of the most beautiful Yixing tea sets available online.

Porcelain Chinese Tea Cup Set

While it doesn’t include a teapot, this beautiful set of Chinese tea mugs is a wonderful way to serve tea to guests or family. Each cup has its own unique, detailed design. 4 cups are included with designs representing things such as dragons, peonys, longevity, and 12 women. The designs are not hand painted. They appear to be decals that have been glazed over to provide permanence. If you’re picky about this sort of detailing, these are not good cups for you. Otherwise, they’re very lovely. Since these are porcelain cups, and they do not have handles, they do heat up when hot liquids are poured into them. Be sure to allow them to cool off before handling.
