Rou Gui

Product code: CSTW-44
Add to my notebook

Due to its typical terroir, the Wuyi Mountains region produces teas known as "rock teas" including the famous Rou Gui. The infusion of its large twists liberates warm notes of bark, spices and roasted nuts. Its lively and fruity (green apple) liquor evolves towards a finish marked by the mildly spicy flavor of Chinese cinnamon, a literal translation of Rou Gui!

Isothermal Jug Eudyptes Black & Azur

An elegant and restrained thermal carafe whose glass interior provides perfect neutrality of taste.

The exterior is made of stainless steel. The lid, the handle and the anti-drip spout are made of certified BPA free plastic. A silicone gasket ensures the pitcher has a perfect seal.

In addition to adding a touch of colour, the push button permits the use of only one hand to facilitate your tastings.

The jug is very useful for  maintaining the water temperature during the infusion of teas using senchado or gong fu cha techniques, or with a gaiwan.

Gaiwan From Mr. Shao SO-40

Mr Shao learned traditional pottery techniques with some of the greatest masters and he is part of a new generation of promising young potters.

Shao Guo Jun was born and educated in the city of Ding Shan. The ceramics which he makes are in the classic style.

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.
