Artisan tea press http://teamistress.com/product/artisan-tea-press/ http://teamistress.com/product/artisan-tea-press/#comments Sun, 29 Dec 2013 16:58:20 +0000 http://www.teamistress.com/?post_type=product&p=397 Ideal for every day tea making, it is convenient and simple to use as well as ensuring the leaves release their full potential. The artisan tea press is of award winning design and used by tea aficionados across China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Its popularity is due to the quality and simplicity of infusion - the quick release system fully drains all the water from the leaves enabling subsequent clean infusions which you can stretch throughout the day.  This is what I use if working or on the go. It is fantastic for the studio and  home - a few tea family members have one for each!

Scent of a Concubine’s intoxicating aroma and alluring depth of flavour echoes the illusive legend of a Qing Dynasty concubine of the Emperor Qianlong. The breathtaking beauty of Xiang Fei was secondary to her natural scent and once rumour reached the Emperor he demanded she be brought to the Imperial city. Torn from her village and husband, on the arduous journey she was bathed in camel milk and had daily rundowns of butter to preserve her enchanting scent. When Xiang Fei reached the Imperial City, she was greeted by a lustful Qianlong. Showering her with extravagant gifts, the Emperor hoped he could entice the exotic creature. But the young concubine would not stir. Only when the emperor installed a jujube tree bearing golden fruit from her hometown in the palace gardens did the concubine break her defiant silence. Legend holds that she fell in love with Emperor because he honoured her ancestry and history.
