Little Moments Jianshui Zitao Tea Jars
- Additional information
These zitao tea jars are made from unglazed 100% Jianshui purple clay. Each jar has a small scene or subject engraved on it. The engravings are then inlaid with various coloured clays before firing and feature real-life things such as: people, fruit, flowers, birds, fish, plants, tea, words, people looking at fruit while drinking tea, etc.
The volume of each jar is approximately 1400ml, making them suitable for storing approximately 1.5 full sized (357g) cakes. 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.
Although these jars can be used to store any type of tea you choose, purple clay storage is quite beneficial for puer as it provides a stable environment and micro-climate to protect your tea from fluctuations in your environment’s temperature and humidity.
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.
