I love white color for tea cups. You can see the natural hue of the tea. I personally think that tea in a dark colored cup doesn’t look so delicious. The cup’s color also has a significant impact to the impression of the taste.
The two cups of tea in the picture are the same. However, don’t you see the obvious different impressions between them? Can you tell why?
The cups are both made of white porcelain having the same texture but you can tell the difference between the colors. The cup in the left is yellowish white, and one on the right is bluish white. I’m not saying which is good or bad. I just think that the tea in the yellowish cup seems to have a more rounded flavor with umami containing essence of genuine. On the other hand, the tea in the bluish cup looks more refined and seems to have a clear and crisp flavor. Again, they are the same tea, so they taste the same when you drink them. Interesting, isn’t it? Which one would you prefer?
You can make the taste of the tea look different by the color of cup. It is one of the most important aspects when you choose your cups!
