Teaware (Tenmoku) These tea bowls were created in China during the Tang Dynasty and gained popularity in the Song Dynasty (960-1279). In China, they are known as "Jian Zhan" but they are more widely known as Tenmoku (Japanese) nowadays. Tenmoku has been part of the Japanese tea ceremony since the 13th century. They are also suitable for brewing Chinese Green, White, Yellow and Black teas.
I received this mighty big teacup holding 400 ml when filled to the rim and weighing 275 g empty. Those ancient tea drinkers must have been thirsty fellows.
It is pretty and I am very happy. When filled with tea the light reflects from the bottom in different colors depending on the source of light and the kind of tea. Very beautiful.
