Yixing

Shao Guo Jun is a potter from Yixing who conscientiously makes practical pieces. The craftsman humbly runs the family workshop with his mother, his wife and a few fellow villagers who come to help out when needed.

In 2007, during his annual trip to China, Jasmin, one of the tasters at Camellia Sinensis, met Mr. Shao for the first time in the village of Ding Shan. His approach and know-how impressed him, and he has been a valuable and loyal partner ever since.

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: 8.5 cm

Camellia Sinensis Duo Cup | Pure White

This cup was designed by the Camellia Sinensis team in partnership with a ceramic workshop in Taiwan. Made of porcelain, the pure white glazed interior finish is perfect to enhance the colour of the liquor of either an entire gaiwan infuson or a shared teapot. An elegant everyday accessory with its pleasing curves and practical size.

Cup from Ms.Sheng | Duan Ni

The unique tone of this Yixing cup is the result of multiple firings: six firings rather than two and this Duan Ni (yellow clay) piece is transformed into a complex material. As a finishing touch, the very last firing in the wood kiln gives rarity and richness to Ms Sheng's work.
