"Rice" pattern is one of Chinese traditional designs – its unique look has been described as "glass-embedded porcelain".
"Rice" pattern (Mie Tung / Mi Tong) originates from the well-known "pottery town" Jingdezhen in Jiangxi province back in the Ming dynasty circa 1465. It features the translucent "rice" pattern on the teapot which allows light shining through bringing with it a blush of the tea liquid colour.
Our teapot and cups are the more "commercial grade" of this design featuring a thicker wall for everyday enjoyment.
