Gaiwan from Ms. Sheng | Duan Ni

The unique tone of this Yixing gaiwan 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.

The cultivar used to produce this great tea comes from wild tea plants reproduced by grafting.
