Jianshui Zitao Clay Storage Jar - "Long Dan" / "Dragon's Egg" Metallic Purple :: FREE SHIPPING
These loose leaf storage jars turned out so amazing! We had these made for us. We got to be there as these were pulled from the kiln. Sometimes when the stars align and the kiln gods shine down their fiery love you get Jianshui that looks like this. These have a fantastic texture and purplish metallic hue. It's almost like they were wood fired. Only a few came out of the kiln like this. The rest will be polished to a shiny black and sold separately. These were just perfect as is.
These are each handmade. They are single fired and unglazed. This is a true clay which lacks any sand. Jianshui is in Yunnan, and the clay used in these jars comes from the same mountains that grow puerh tea trees. We appreciate that connection. We blogged about this unique town here.
You can use these jars to store loose tea, or cakes you have broken up. We prefer storing loose tea in jars like this when we can.
This jar measures 18cm Wide ( 7” ) x 15.5cm Tall ( 6” ). The amount of leaf they can hold will depend on the size of the leaf and the level of compression. You can easily store a few hundred grams of large loose leaf. These are handmade and each will have slight variations. The one you receive might differ slightly from the one pictured.
