Cup from Jingdezhen | Tenmoku
The elegance and finesse of the Tenmoku glaze contrasts nicely with its host: a dense and textured clay cup. The thickness of this ceramic makes it ideal for serving high temperature teas. If the Tenmoku style dazzles the eye, it is with a tea inside that it truly reveals its magic.

Impressive big leaves make up this Pu Er from the late 20th century. Intoxicating mossy fragrances (lichen) blend with the comforting aromas of root vegetables (potatoes, carrots) and dried bamboo. Its bright liquor affirms dynamism in a strong initial mouthfeel with tangy, sweet, mineral sensations. Its aromatic bouquet is rich with a refreshing after taste felt long in the breath. A thoroughly enjoyable vibrant tea!
