Porcelain and bone china take on slight discolourations from coffein and the tea contents Teain. A cup with discoloured inner walls points to a passionate tea connoisseur. In certain regions of the world it is well looked upon, when the tea vessel contains a slight discolouration, thus proving that the sensitive tea aroma is sustained.
Nevertheless, we still would like to give you tips on how to eliminate this natural discolouration with simple household products. We recommend rinsing your mug or cup out immediately after use with hot water to prevent the staining from occuring in general. Existing stains can be cleaned with baking powder or salt. Pour a packet of baking soda or salt along with hot water into the vessel and let this sit over night. The next day you can easily remove the discolouration with a sponge or cloth. Smaller discolourations or rings can often be removed with the help of citric acid.
