Song Dynasty-Style Glass container
A glass container inspired by the Song-Dynasty vases that made the history of the Chinese tea culture and ceremony.
It spills with precision, and we love to use it as water-container to prepare the white tea, or for our summertime cold brews.
Capacity: 500ml ; height: 17cm.
Originally, during the Song Dynasty (year 960—1279) this kind of pot was used to prepare the green tea - that at that time was in powder version - thanks to the special shape of the sprout that allows to immediately stop the spilling. This also explains why the traditional shape lacks a filter, as it wasn't used for powdered green tea. However, this modernized version is provided with an internal filter that allows the most comfortable brewing.
Later on, during the Ming Dynasty (1368―1644), when the tea production became slightly more labor-saving with the introduction of the loose-leaf format, this shape of pottery almost disappeared.
The pot’s body is divided in 6 parts with 4 lines, shaped like a melon. Originally it was made of porcelain, gold, or silver, while nowadays is well regarded in transparent glass.

Bellissima teiera di design storico. L’impugnatura è maneggevole e l’ottima curva del beccuccio permette di versare il tè in modo preciso. La mancanza di un filtro la rende poco idonea per l’uso di foglie piccole
