This Yu tea jar is made from ochre with black speckle coloured clay and is a delightful vessel for storing and preparing your leaves for drinking.
Excellent quality of Clay.
Korean style ceramic.
Storing high quality teas correctly is very important for preserving the taste and natural aroma.
For porcelain or stoneware tea jars, wax or a piece of fabric can be placed between the jar and lid to
make a more airtight seal. Teas that aren’t super fresh (more oxidized/roasted oolongs, aged pu-erh) or which don’t need long term storage may
actually benefit from a container that’s not totally airtight,
especially if you live in a dry climate.
