Celadon gaiwan from Mr Jin | Craqueled CeladonMr Jin Collection
This craqueled celadon gaiwan comes directly from the workshops of Mr Jin Yi Rui located in the city of Longquan, China.
For many centuries, Longquan has nurtured its historic tradition of the production of ceramics, especially that of celadon, which has made it famous.
Glossy and smooth, the works cast by the artisan are intended to be a perfect ceramic for everyday use.
The craqueled finish has the benefit of evolving with use as the tannins permeate it little by little, also enriching its colour.
Although traditionally celadon is used for green teas, it happily hosts all families of tea.
Diameter of the opening: 9.6 cm
Height: 8.25 cm

Over the years, wulongs from Dong Ding Mountain have made quite a name for themselves. Grown in high-altitude, shorter daylight and greater temperature variations concentrate the aromatic oils in the slow budding leaves. They are well known amongst tea enthusiasts for their creamy texture and buttery taste.
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.
