Description

December 18th, 2020

These infuser mugs are 2020 production from Lin's Ceramic Studio in Taiwan. At the time of writing, these are Lin's 6th most popular product! These mugs are made with Lin's proprietary Purion blend, which is a blend of clay and rock  ore which Lin's devised as an exclusively Taiwanese substitute for Yixing clay. As with all Lin's products, this is beautifully crafted. Lin's states the capacity of these mugs to be 350ml, but I found the usable volume (to the bottom of the spout) to be just under 300ml. The test mug in the pictures is 318g without the infuser and lid. The basket weighs 151g, and the lid is 99g, so this is quite a heavy mug.

The basket has smaller and more numerous holes in the bottom than on the sides, which prevents dust and smaller fragments from ending up in the cup. As with all of Lin's products, this one was very well thought out. 

The mug can readily be used as a pitcher and it has a subtle spout for pouring, so you can use this vessel both ways. The infuser basket nests in the inverted lid, preventing drips onto your desk or table. The spout on this mug sold me on these since it makes this mug a great substitute for a teapot when you'd rather drink (or even serve) from a cup.

I found this mug to make my 2007 Dayi 7572 much, much smoother and sweeter than it was in porcelain. Some of the aged notes dissipated and I could taste the cherry and jujube flavors better than in porcelain, but there was a slight rounding of aromatics and I couldn't detect the jasmine aromatics this tea had in porcelain as readily, but this note was still apparent. I expect these mugs to excel with aged pu erh, liu bao and high roast oolongs. I will test this mug with roasted oolong soon and I will update this listing with my findings then. I'm keeping the test mug for myself!
