Wood Fired Jianshui Cup 35ml
These are very special tea cups. Each are handmade and fired in a natural wood burning kiln. These were fired for almost a week. Most pieces do not last through the wood firing process. They break and are discarded. The ones that survive are special.
Wood firing Jianshui clay creates unique patterns. The smoke and inconsistent heat create unique colors and patterns. Additionally the smoke carries pitch from the wood that can settle on the teaware and create a sparkling effect only noticeable when wet.
Jianshui clay teawares are single fired and unglazed. This is a true clay which lacks any sand. The natural minerals in the clay will enhance the flavor of your tea. Jianshui is in Yunnan, and the clay used in these teapots comes from the same mountains that grow puerh tea trees. We appreciate that connection. We blogged about this unique town here.
These teacups are 35ml. They are a random patterning of primarily golden tan / grey on black. The cups you receive may be different in appearance than the ones shown. The patterns in each are random and unique.
These tea cups are each 35ml in volume.
The price is for a single teacup.
