This dark wulong from Phoenix Mountains (Feng Huang) is a a very great example of balanced charcoal roasting: light chestnut aromas with a side of ripe fruits and a lingering flowery breath in the finish.
Gaiwan from Ms. Zhang | SummitMs. Zhang Collection
With its light blue shading, asymmetrical saucer and fancy lid, this porcelain gaiwan is like no other. A true work of art with a futuristic feel that will make you want to use it daily.
The artist Zhang Zhen Chun is the perfect example of a symbiosis between modernity and tradition. Passionate about design, this young woman develops pieces that have style and character.
A graduate of the University of Jingdezhen in China, her works are born of a city famous for the quality of its porcelain since the Tang Dynasty (7th century).
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.
The artisanal aspect of these gaiwans makes each one unique. Naturally, colour gradients will vary from one piece to another.The beauty of hand crafted authenticity.
