Teapot from Makiko | Vanille
The distinct finish on these elegant pieces is created using a clay powder in the glaze.
These fine Makiko teapots have a unique soft glaze. The cracked finish will evolve with each infusion as the tannins enter the cracks and enrich the overall finish.
To learn more about the approach of the artist, see the article devoted to it in our tea tasters blog.
The craft used for these teapots makes each one unique so colour gradients and format will vary from one to another. The true beauty of artisanal work.

Initial impression from this Taiwanese highland wulong is an aroma of ground-cherry and wheat-grass which evolves into fresh vanilla and flowers.
This exceptional batch, organic no less, comes from one of the flagship gardens of the region. Its long fragile leaves produce its golden liquor with a supple and oily texture supported by the body of its generous tannins. You'll find subtle notes of flowers and berries complementing the more classical aromas of amber, bark and sweet spices. Just lovely from start to finish.
