Did You Know?

Elites of the Goryeo period are known for their love of drinking tea and wine. In Korea, chrysanthemum flowers and leaves were made into both tea and wine.

Description

In Korea, chrysanthemum flowers and leaves were made into both tea and wine. Chrysanthemum wine was enjoyed during the the Double Nine Festival (the ninth day of the ninth month in the lunar calendar) praying for longevity.
The flower design on the saucer is less delicate than the cup, suggesting that the cup and saucer originally were not related to each other.
