Tea is popular as water in Vietnam. In every Vietnamese house, restaurant, or even office, people always a tea set available. Tea sets vary from small tiny tea sets for decoration or for ancestor altars, simple tea sets with earth tone enamels the in rural houses, to the fancy, beautiful tea sets that Vietnamese people only use for special guess. An authentic tea set is a hand made one. Each piece of the set is hand shaped, has a charm and a little bit different from each other which create the “soul” of the tea set. This “life” cannot exist in the mass produce tea sets which the pot and the cups come from the commercial mold. An authentic tea set must be hand-painted before the enamel process so the design and the color stay forever on.
You know it when you look into the hand-painted tea set. Each set is hand made and is a piece of art.
Here is our tea sets collection from Bat Trang, the famous pottery village in the north of Vietnam, with the best quality you could find. Bat Trang today has changed so much. There are only a few families who are still keeping the trade while most of the young villagers left to work in the city. The sad fact is that we are seeing less and less authentic pottery products from Bat Trang.
