The Chinese revere the dragon, and consider themselves descendants of the mythical creature. Accordingly, the dragon egg tea pot is one of the most classic Chinese tea pot shapes. In our elegantly minimalist version, dark charcoal is mixed with the purest of clay from Mount Jiuhua. The carbon particles not only absorb excess chlorine from the water, they also boost the pot’s insulation.
Because there’s beauty in contrasts, we’ve paired the jet-black pot with four delicate sipping cups handmade from the finest porcelain. Theirs is a quality you can literally see: hold them up to the light and the porcelain appears translucent.
The porous ceramic will absorb color and aroma of tea and is suitable for teas of one oxidation.
