Hangzhou Original:To acquire really fine Long-jing in rapidly changing China, we had to search away from tourists infested localities, and yet still faithful to the origin of Hangzhou. In Wu’s farm where the underground water is crisp and the air sweet, our Long-jing master realizes the environment is more important than the convenience; there would be no quality without the traditional respect for Nature. Tea Hong’s Long-jing Spring Equinox might well be used by nobles and mandarins in their tea competition when Emperor Qianlong was still young and flamboyant, and crazy about the tea.

Silk Finish Aijiao Wulong:No this is not the beer but 100% pure oolong. Wuyi classic oolongs in general distinguish themselves from other oolongs with a stout, rather immediate and powerful impact. Tea Hong’s Cream Stout differs from the crowd with a soft creamy finish and a light tone of cream that is developed naturally in the tealeaves themselves. This is possible only with a new pedigree of tea cultivar, Aijiao Wulong. We believe you’ll like the oolong much better than the beer, as we do. Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack

Rare Quality Meizhan Hong ChaNot many black teas can achieve a smooth and full body. To have a floral, yet warm aroma with spicy sweetness and complexity of dried fruit would be a luxury. Tongmuguan One makes it even better by delivering the whole package with a sophisticated balance and yet subtle uniqueness unfound in its peers. A very limited batch produced in the mecca of xiao zhong gungfu black tea, Tongmuguan, this finely processed leaves of Meizhan is precious not because it is rare, but because it is so demanding to produce to this quality. It is not every year that we can achieve a gem like this.
Many quality worthy teapots in the market available at great values carry fake artist names. That is because the people who are mastery enough to produce such quality do not want such affordable price to dilute the much higher prices of the products with their real names. Yet they need a constant cash flow. Using alternative names gives them the freedom to sell more and at the same time protection of the artistic status which their authentic signatures represent.
At Tea Hong, we take on a pragmatic approach: whenever we come across great values, whether real name or not, we acquire them to share with our customers. Jin Yan Ping is one such avatar whose work is exceptional value. This pot would be many times the price had the artist put her real name on it.
The easy and yet precise fit of the inset lid highlights the mastery of shape and style of an otherwise common traditional form. The excellent craftsmanship can be seen throughout every aspect of the sculptural piece: from the sensuously undulating roundness of the body down to the perfectly formed lid-bead and the appliqué of the romantic motifs. Hand-built in good zi-ni clay, this is a great long infusion vessel as well as a display-worthy collectible.
Packing: Tea towel pull bag in collector’s case
