    From: $11.99 / 50g

    Our 2015 Emperor’s Royal Pu-erh is produced by the famous Yunnan Menghai tea factory. It is made of the most delicate leaf tips from wild big-leaf tea trees. In the old days, common people were allowed to pick leaves from these trees only after the royal household had already picked theirs, meaning that the best part of the tea tree of this Pu-erh was only available to the royal family, as a symbol of wealth and power. The reason it was so popular among the royal family was that it has outstanding health benefits, including relieving the uncomfortableness after eating a greasy meal or loosening the bowels to relieve constipation.

  • From: $24.99 / 50g

    From a certain point of view, dried tangerine and Pu-Erh tea are made for each other. From the Ming dynasty, dried tangerine started to be treated as a very special tea because of its unique medical value and natural fruity aroma. Pu-Erh was brewed together with dried tangerine by coincidence in the Qing Dynasty. Since then, this combination has become popular throughout the country.

    During the production of the tea, the green tangerine was dried which helps to retain its ball shape in order to wrap the Pu-Erh tea leaves inside. The green tangerine of our orange-peel style Pu-Erh tea comes from Xin Hui in Guangdong province which is the hometown of dried tangerine and famous for its best mandarin garden. The technology of making tangerine is regarded as one of the National Intangible Cultural Heritage.

    This particular Tangerine Ripe Pu-erh is made by the well-known Fuhai Tea Factory. The tea leaves wrapped inside are 2011-year Emperor’s Royal ripe Pu-erh tea leaves originating from Meng Hai County in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan province.

  • Hand Painted Yuan Mandarin Ducks Playing in Water Master Tea CupHand Painted Yuan Mandarin Ducks Playing in Water Master Tea Cup
    $439.99

    This master teacup is made in the style of the Yuan dynasty blue and white porcelain, completely handmade and hand-painted. The entire painting exudes a strong sense of antiquity, with bold and vigorous lines, and the mandarin ducks playing in water pattern appear vivid and lifelike.

    In traditional Chinese culture, the symbol of mandarin ducks playing in water holds profound significance. ‘Mandarin ducks’ refer to a loving couple, while ‘playing in water’ symbolizes the beautiful vision of shared life and mutual efforts. In ancient Chinese literature, the motif of mandarin ducks playing in water is widely used to portray the affection between spouses and the blissful and harmonious life they lead. Moreover, it embodies a harmonious, balanced, and optimistic attitude towards life.

    There are various representations of mandarin ducks playing in the water, with the most common being the image of two mandarin ducks frolicking in the water, portraying a scene of affection and harmony. In this depiction, mandarin ducks are often gracefully rendered, displaying light postures, splendid feathers, and vibrant colours. Additionally, scenes of mandarin ducks playing in the water are often accompanied by depictions of lotus leaves, lotus flowers, and other plants, creating a refreshing and enchanting ambiance.

    Besides, for Yuan blue and white porcelain refers to the blue and white porcelain produced during the Yuan dynasty (1271-1368) in China. The Yuan dynasty was an important period in the history of Chinese porcelain and one of the peaks of Chinese porcelain art. As one of the representatives of that era, Yuan blue and white porcelain exhibited unique artistic styles and technical levels. The characteristic of Yuan blue and white is the use of cobalt blue pigment for painting, which is made of cobalt oxide. After firing, the colour is bright and rich, with an extremely high decorative effect. Yuan blue and white porcelain has various shapes, thick and heavy, concise, and fluent lines, and stable and solemn shapes, all made exquisitely.

    The evolution of Yuan blue and white is based on the foundation of Tang and Song celadon. Firstly, the glaze colour was improved and innovated. Unique white glaze, eggshell glaze and blue-white glaze were invented to make the glaze crystal clear. Cobalt pigment was imported for glaze colouring. Or using the pigment made from domestic materials.

    The formation of tin spots on Yuan blue and white is due to the high content of iron elements in local parts of the blue pigment. After reaching saturation in the high-temperature glaze solution and cooling down, the iron elements in the supersaturated part start to precipitate. If the iron content of the blue pigment is higher and the cooling rate is appropriate, tin spots are more likely to appear on the surface of the ware.

    In addition to firing and materials, the formation of tin spots also involves the factor of glaze material. During the painting process, tin spots can also be formed due to the accumulation of blue pigment. Tin spots are more likely to appear on the surface of the ware at the intersections and the starting and ending points of brushstrokes. The formation of tin spots can be said to be a natural creation or an artificial decoration.

    This master teacup has a smooth and lustrous texture and uses the Su Ma Li Qing glaze material (a kind of blue pigment), with a heavy sense of tin spots, revealing a unique charm of the past era. The entire production process is completed by hand, and every detail has been carefully designed and polished, giving this teacup a unique artistic charm. The blue and white mandarin ducks playing in water pattern is vivid, showcasing ancient cultural and aesthetic values, allowing people to immerse themselves in a beautiful artistic atmosphere while enjoying their tea.
