Such Yue celadon tea bowls of this type are usually conical in shape, with a bi-disc form shaped foot. It was noted in Luk Yu's Cha Jing (Classic of Tea) that 'Bowls produced from Yue Zhou ranked high', and 'The celadon of the Yue stoneware contrasts with the green-coloured tea'. Yue celadon tea bowls have been well revered since the beginning of the Chinese tea culture.

此類茶盌呈斗笠形，底部圈足呈壁形。唐代陸羽在《茶經》中有曰：「碗，越州上。」、「越瓷青而茶色綠。」，可見越窰茶盌自古得茶人追崇。參照北京故宮博物院收藏一近例，載於呂成龍編，《故宮陶瓷館 卷一 · 新石器時代至五代》，北京，2021年，圖版119。
