Land & Sea Jianshui Zitao Tea Jar

0 out of 5



These zitao tea jars are made from unglazed 100% Jianshui purple clay and feature inlaid designs of fish and birds.

These were originally created as as “jingpin” collectors’ pieces that sell for a much higher price. However, these jars are offered at a reduced price due to the presence of very minor cosmetic defects (example pictured).

The volume of each jar is approximately 2200ml, making them suitable for storing approximately 2 full-sized (357g) cakes when broken up. 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.

Due to the size and weight, these jars are shipped via EMS.
