Nocturne Jianshui Zitao Tea Jars
- Additional information
These zitao tea jars are made from unglazed 100% Jianshui purple clay. Each of these jars has an owl engraving that is then inlaid with various coloured clays before firing.
The volume of each jar is approximately 700ml, making them suitable for storing approximately 1 x 200g sized cake (emphasis on approximately). Although it can be used to store any type of tea you choose, purple clay storage is most beneficial to puer as it provides a stable environment and microclimate to preserve an adequate amount of humidity without fluctuations.
This particular container can be used as a transitional storage spot to “wake up” the tea between longer term storage and drinking, or a long term solution if you wish. How long you store your tea in it is ultimately up to you.
