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.

Artisan Tasting & Smelling Cup Set http://teamistress.com/product/artisan-tasting-smelling-cup-set/ http://teamistress.com/product/artisan-tasting-smelling-cup-set/#comments Tue, 11 Mar 2014 17:23:58 +0000 http://www.teamistress.com/?post_type=product&p=925 This stunning four piece tasting and smelling cup set was artisan made and fired at the Shuili Snake Kiln 水里蛇窯.  The 30 metre kiln was built in 1927 when master potter Lin Chiang-sung 林江松 arrived in the small rural town of Nantou County, Taiwan. Three generations of master potters have made and continue to make remarkable teaware. My Taiwanese family first took me Shuili Snake Kiln because it is renown throughout Taiwan for rustic and authentic teaware. I purchased two incredible sets - one to share and one for myself. Tea Mistress now has a beautiful connection with the Shuili Snake Kiln and is able to custom order sets as desired. Please note that at present shipment will take approximately 3-4 weeks.
