There is a little history behind every cup of tea and this one begins without the handle in China, where the enjoyment of a bowl of tea began. The saucer was used to keep the tea warm, and was placed on top of the bowl. In the mid-seventeenth century when tea made its adventure and was imported into England, the British received tea with passionate cheer. The tea bowl then took shape and was introduced to the handle making the perfect couple to this day, the teacup was created.
