Originating in Guangdong, this black tea bears the typical form of the wulong teas produced in the Feng Huang region.
Tea Jar from Mr. Lin
Taiwanese artist Lin Jianhong has created this celadon work of art, a unique cup with a velvety texture and an enveloping finish.
Originally from Luku in Taiwan, the artist learned the refinement of ceramics from the great masters of Japan. Jianhong uses the Ru Yao glaze, a type of celadon developed during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). His pieces are fired in a gas kiln at a temperature of up to 1250° Celsius, which gives them a sweet, sugar-like effect.
Underneath the thick light blue coating, the raw clay adds a contrast that is pleasing to the eye and to the touch.
The inside of the jar is enamelled and the lid covers the opening perfectly, a testament the craftsman’s meticulousness.
Diameter of the opening: 7 cm
Height: 14.5 cm

This very respectable Shou Pu er is offered here in carefully broken pieces of the original cake, a relatively affordable formula when compared to the price of whole cakes of this age. Its liquor is dense and milky, even after two rinses (as is often recommended for these antiques).
