- Additional information
This zitao tea jar is made from unglazed 100% Jianshui purple clay and feature an inlaid bird designs. The lid has a vase-like stem, however the bottom is solid. The lid can still be used to hold a branch or stalk.
This jar was originally created as a “jingpin” collectors’ pieces that sells for a much higher price. However,this jar is offered at a reduced price due to the presence of very minor cosmetic defects (example pictured).
The volume of this jar is approximately 2200ml, making it 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.
