140 ml

This gaiwan was created and hand painted by artisans of Jingdezhen for Camellia Sinensis.

Jingdezhen, a village famous for producing quality porcelain since the Tang Dynasty (7th century).

The cobalt blue style is typical of the Ming Dynasty (16th century) and has become a classic and timeless style in the world of fine porcelain.

This small cup comes with a lid and saucer and is used especially for infusing large leaf teas.

The leaves are infused directly and the lid holds them back when the tea is ready to pour. This allows the leaves to be saved for multiple infusions, thus concentrating the flavours and aromas for each cup.

Diameter of the opening: 9.5 cm

Height: 9.25 cm

Sun Moon Lake T-18

Here is a rare black tea from Taiwan, made using the well known T-18 cultivar which is derived from a cross between a large leafed tea from Burma (Ashamu) and a wild tea tree from southern Taiwan. Infused, its graceful leaves emanate smooth aromas of wintergreen, malt and tobacco. Lightly mentholated and generously fruity with notes of prune and raisin, its liquor is round, full and silky. A perfect tea for those special mornings.

Ceramic Tea Boat | Panorama

Besides being a serving tray and contributing to the aesthetics of the tea ritual, this tea boat is a ceramic container to catch the water. Depending on the infusion technique used, you can dispose of the water used to heat your equipment as well as your rinse water. The water is drained by pouring through the hole on the top corner of the tea boat.
