Brewing cup, also known as single cup, personal cup, or master’s cup, is a special cup used for tasting tea.

Many people like to collect cups, with various materials, colors and shapes, so that they can select different cups for different occasions.

Different cups have a subtle effect on the aroma and taste of tea, but it takes some skill to tell the difference. Of course, for most people, it mainly depends on their mood which cup to use. Using different cups will also bring you memories of your own with them, which is extremely wonderful.
