This small container is ideal for storing and preserving loose leaf tea. It is best suited for loose leaf Puerh Teas and darker Teas such as Roasted Oolongs, Heicha and Tibetan Tea. The clay is made from mineral rich clay from Taiwan and handcrafted from local artists. The container seal includes an aluminum layer for extra seal protection and freshness preservation. Such storage is increasingly hard to come by but our unique partnership with Lin’s Ceramics allows for such containers to be imported into the West. These tea storages also make for great decorations.
