Purple-clay tea set has a long history in China. Su Shi, the great scholar of the Song Dynasty, had designed a pot with handle, called “Dongpo Pot with Loop Handle”.

    Wunderbar leichte Kanne mit optimalen Giessverhalten! Die Dao Fa Zi Ran Inschrift ist sehr gut ausgeführt. Unschlagbar günstig.

    Hier stimmt das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis!
    Ich erhielt eine gut gearbeitete Kanne, welche ich im täglichen Gebrauch zu schätzen weiß. Auch diese Kanne überzeugt mit einem sehr guten und tropffreiem Giessverhalten, was in dieser Preisklasse nicht immer selbstverständlich ist.
    Verwendet wird diese Kanne von mir für gerollten Oolong Tee, welcher ausreichend Platz findet, um sich voll zu entfalten. Das Ergebnis: ein wundervoller Tee in der Schale.
