100 ml

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.

Qi Lan Xiang

Rolled into thin twists, true to the style of Guangdong, this wulong  has, however, been roasted only once (rather than twice) preserving its greenness and its distinctly floral aromatic bouquet. Its liquor thrusts its vegetal and sweet (fried courgette) character, embellished with rich nuances of fresh cream and coconut. Its finish is thirst-quenching and shows a tangy edge evoking pineapple. Also an excellent ice tea!

Ceramic Tea Boat | Le Carré

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.
