Week In Pictures (August 22 – 28)Bitterleaf
This may look like a simple 80ml gaiwan, but in the Chinese #tea scene, pink is the hot colour this year. Why pink? It comes back to it being year of the monkey, and what do monkeys eat? Peaches. Pink peaches. Just the other week we watched several ladies fight over a peach blossom Jianshui tea jar for that very reason. Trends aside, we were quite happy to be able to get this wide gaiwan from a small studio in Jingdezhen.
These pink gaiwans have been incredibly popular. Originally offered for private/direct sale only, we have since been able to acquire a few more and added them for anyone to pick up. As mentioned above, this tone of pink is a popular colour in Chinese teaware this year, thanks to it being year of the monkey. Aside from that, the colour, shape and size make it a perfect vessel for individual sessions.
Just a montage of new wood fired teapots we picked up. It’s hard to not grab some of these when each one is different from the others. These wood fired pots from De Hua and our Jianshui teaware have definitely become favourites.
