Why Does the Chinese Tea Cup have a Lid?
Chinese tea cups are very popular in the Chinese tea industry. Many ask why these cups always come with a lid. One main reason is that having a lid (some of which can be very creative and adorable) helps to prevent loose leaves from getting into your mouth! Sometimes holding back the lid is enough, but sometimes it might need to be tilted away slightly just for some more precautionary measures when you reach for a sip. Another reason for a lid would be because you don't need to let all that fresh tea go bitter from overheating! Instead, we recommend drinking your tea slower, so not only does it last longer but also tastes better too. Not many people like their tea cold, so having that nice heat retention means your sweet tea will last much longer and remain warmer in your cup - helping you to enjoy it longer as well.
