While our new have painted hide & seek porcelain gaiwans may be a little too small for your cat to hide in, every order confess with a free larger cardboard box, just for your cat's enjoyment!

New teapots, (a lot of) tea pets and tea are now available! Several of our new tea pets can also double as an incense holder, but how you use them is up to you. Just watch your fingers, as some of them may bite.

Bold & beautiful. This 200ml Yixing shipiao not only has a unique shape with its wide opening, but also a delicate "nihui" style scene sculpted onto the surface. This time consuming process involves carefully adding clay to the surface and then sculpting a scene with various tools - in this case a small bird in a branch being paid a visit by a dragonfly.

This is just a test. There may not be any #tea in this teapot, but this is how it would pour against an urban backdrop at sunset if it had tea in it as well.

"I believe I can fly..."⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Sick of our cat tea pets yet? No? Ok good, because neither are we.

We're deep into the middle of shou puer season now, folks. On days like these our Plum Beauty ripe hits the spot. For those of us living in the south half of China and without central heating, #tea is the best tool we have for staying warm... And maybe some sweaters.

Making #tea with a new kettle that came in the other week. We wanted to call these "1001 kettles", as they're from the same studio, but let's be honest, there's just not as much variation with unglazed kettles. Nonetheless, we're looking forward to adding some of these in due time.

It's always nice to have someone willing to lend a helping hand around the tea table. Of course they should be strong enough to handle a teapot lid... That's not a very difficult strength requirement now that we think about it.

2 pots in the hand is better than one in the bush... Although we have no idea what a teapot would be doing in a bush.

Some new Jasmine flower tea pets, quite similar to our Miangui tea pets, however, these little fellas can also double as an incense holder as well. Or are they incense holders that double as tea pets...

What do you do when you can't think of a new name for your teaware? Just steal a name, like from your tea. Our Secret Garden gaiwans are our newest style of painted gaiwan and we love them. Just like the rabbit and pomegranate gaiwans from the same studio, these hold ~100ml and are completely hand painted, with a clear crackled glaze and classic vintage "fanggu" style.

Black cat w/ black teapot, for extra good luck.

One of our 1001 series teapots that was a bit camera shy and wouldn't stop blushing, so we had to sneak up on it and use a branch for cover. Now it's on its way to a new home, but there are still 4 more from our most recent release that are in need of a #tea table to call home.

"The daughter of Re, the sun god, Bastet was an ancient deity whose ferocious nature was ameliorated after the domestication of the cat around 1500 BCE... Small figures of cats were also worn as amulets; this too was probably related to the cult of Bastet." Honouring the daughter of Re in our own way, one tea at a time.

Some days are harder than others, when you just need a miniature blue smurf horse to talk you off the ledge and into making some #tea.

After sitting under its sparse shade, this Yixing shuiping was tattooed by the bamboo that gave it cover. Well, not exactly... The bamboo might actually be engraved.
