This product challenges the assumption that use (i.e. scratches, discoloration, wear and tear) is damaging or bad. Designed to improve through use, the inside of the cup is treated so that it is more susceptible to the staining that results from tea drinking. The more the cup is used, the more the pattern is revealed and, over time, the intensity of the pattern will increase. The speed depends on the owners personal tea drinking habit.
