I have always wanted some real, antique Chinese tea cups, but have yet to be satisfied with what I found, be it Blue&White ware, Celadon ware, or Zisha ware, glazed or unglazed. But these ROC cups really capture the aura and atmosphere of that "far away time and place" which the heart and mind are nostalgic for. They're great! The caly is old and noble; the calligraphy is ancient, yet timeless; and the enamel is a perfectly soft, off-white, with faint, fine crackles. Perfect!
