Minna Graham Teacups - Lichen

A pair of small teacups from Minna Graham, a ceramicist based in Daylesford. Minna hand throws each of these cups on the wheel, before carving in extra detail once leather-hard. These cups feature a delightful ‘lichen’ glaze, speckled and spotted due to the reduction environment in her gas kiln, and the use of materials from around her studio in creating the glaze. Each firing is unique, and its impossible to recreate the exact same glaze outcome each time.

Two cups available, each purchase is for one cup.

Each cup can hold approximately 35ml of brewed tea when filled comfortably. Approximately 6x4cm dimensions.

  • Use boiling water (100C). 

    We recommend approx 1g of tea per 15ml of water for Gongfu-style brewing in a teapot or gaiwan. Rinse the leaves once and then brew several times until there is no flavour left.

    For Western-style brewing in a larger teapot, use approx. 5g per 100ml of water. You can re-brew the leaves a few times.

    To brew direct in a mug, use 1-2g of tea in the bottom of the cup, fill with boiling water, and drink once cool. Re-fill the cup with more water when you've drunk 1/3rd of the tea. Repeat until there is no more flavour left.

  • All of our teas are suitable for long-term storage and aging.

    Keep your tea away from sunlight and strong smells, and somewhere with stable climate conditions.

    You can keep it sealed inside the re-usable bag the tea comes in, or another non-porous container.
