This tea from Hunan Province is grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides and is made solely from lovely rolled golden-hued buds. The result is a surprising liquor that is both silky and aromatic. Rich aromas of caramel and mild spices harmonize well with subtle vegetable notes (corn, tomato, and artichoke hearts) to create a balanced and particularly admirable vintage.
Oitomi Cast Iron Teapot | Fur
The Japanese company Oitomi is now in exclusive Canadian sales at Camellia Sinensis. This foundry offers us this classical teapot, in a style both contemporary and respectful of a craft tradition several centuries old in Japan.
Cast iron is a material that has the particular properties of being both dense and conductive of heat. These characteristics give this material its rustic, even comforting aspect.
Warming the teapot with a little boiling water before each use will prolong the time that the tea can retain its initial temperature.
The enamelled interior, besides being rust resistant, permits great versatility. Another particularity to consider: the cast iron is unbreakable, which represents a choice investment for any tea lover!
