The minimalist 'tone-on-tone' effect of this ensemble, on the graphite black ceramic boat accompanied by a Japanese Washi box.
With two matte white cups to complete the picture.
In the spotlight: our Huiming Hong Cha, a black tea with rich chocolate and gourmet notes.
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.
While most Japanese Washi boxes shine with colors, this one plays a much more sober card. Its large format is ideal for everyday tea drinkers.
This black tea, a recent innovation of Mr He, is composed of long curly leaves decorated with golden buds. In infusion, rich chocolate and gourmet notes (peanut oil) stimulate our senses. Its coppery and smooth liquor unfolds on the palate with an amazing complexity, combining tart, sweet and even umami (oyster) with its nuances of root vegetables (parsnips) and spices. A silky tea from beginning to end. To learn more about this product, see this blog article.
