"Dragon" New Years Greeting Calligraphy Scroll
We wanted to do something special for the Year of the Dragon, and so we commissioned celebrated calligrapher Lai Qifeng, a friend of our porcelain guy, Alex, to write these hand-made calligraphy scrolls!
Wishing everyone a happy Year of the Dragon, the scrolls measure 32cm (12.6 in.) by 72 cm (28.35 in.) and are completely handmade. Each one is unique!
The text reads:
"During the eleventh moon of the Year of the Water Rabbit, Qifeng wrote this for the collection of Jesse's Teahouse"
All combo orders will include FREE SCROLL while supplies last!
What is Blue-White Porcelain?
Blue-White Porcelain, known in Chinese as "Qing Hua Ci 青花瓷" is perhaps the most classic of all tea-ware materials. The white of the porcelain serves as the "negative space" that brings out detail in traditional Chinese painting.
Fired at 1300 Celsius (2370 Fahrenheit), the high heat allows this porcelain to have clean, bright colors as well as making it impervious to water, making it easy to clean and maintain. This attribute also means the set will not absorb the flavor of the tea, making it good for making all types of teas without fear of mixing flavors.
Jesse's Quality Guarantee!
When I started this shop, I wanted to find a way to take care of tea friends in a way normal online shops wouldn't.
That's why all the tea tables and equipment on the site are shipped in custom foam to keep them safe all the way to you - but even if that should fail, I will replace any defective items and items damaged during shipping for free. Simply contact email@example.com if you have issues.
I also highly recommend buying shipping insurance with your order - for a few dollars, we can save lots of time and energy chasing down shipping company paperwork in the case of a shipping issue.
I take care of my tea friends! I hope you will keep coming back!
