My new cups with little fishes

This Chaxi was organized to celebrate the arrival of my new Chinese porcelain tea cups with design of fish. Cups are quite simple but of a great impact and for this I chose a simple pairing him to return to white cups themselves.

I chose a rolled low-medium roasting oolong tea similar than Tie Kwan Yin. It 's a gift that was brought to me from a trip and are not able to tell you exactly what kind of tea would be.

The cups are quite large and are of the beautiful porcelain of Jing de Zhen. The design of the fish (both internal and external) is in blue and red color and is done in a way that once filled the cup, the fish seem to swim.

I accompanied this tea with small Japanese sweets (black sesame mochi stuffed with azuki jam) served in the classic lacquered Japanese meimeizara saucers with a new fork just come from Japan and ... I'm really in love of it!
