There is a saying about Jianzhan: "One glaze, a thousand colors."  

The technique of Jianzhan was invented in the Song Dynasty and later spread to Japan.  For a long time, this glaze was a lost art in China, until the 1990's, when it was returned by Japan, where the art had been preserved.  This iron-rich glaze is often said to benefit the blood and improve the flavor of the tea, and gives these cups a pleasant weight.  While these cups are luminously gorgeous when empty, the addition of tea brings out their full range of colors.
