The Tianbai (smooth and silky) glaze was developed during the Yongle 永乐 Emperor Reign of the Ming Dynasty (1402-1424). This third emperor of the Ming Dynasty had a strong preference for white porcelain. During his reign, almost all Jingdezhen imperial porcelains were Tianbai white porcelains.
Order your tea when it's fresh. Green tea, white tea, black tea and yellow tea re picked in spring, when you order in April/May you'll have the fresh tea. We'll write down in the details in which year and at what time the tea was harvested. Light oolongs and Dancong oolongs will be available at the start of May and Wuyi Oolongs around July. If you buy Puehr tea, then buy aged puerh teas or fresh puerh with suitable for drinking directly.
If you're not familiar with natural teas, then we suggest you to order a number of varieties first. However, when you have some favorites, then we suggest you to buy the amount for a whole year. If you're not a very heavy tea drinker, then around 250gram of tea of 2 or 3 teas will be enough for a whole year. If you order for at least 100usd, we can ship by express, which will be fast. Fresh tea is the best, therefore we recommend to order at least 100usd per time.
When you make a purchase on Teazaar, the tea will be shipped from the tea farm. Most of the tea shipments will go through our Xiamen or Hong Kong office, but big shipments will go directly to you. Wherever you are in the world.
Our shipping costs are 20usd (or equivalent in other currencies) per order. All flat rate. All products are shipped from tea growers in Asia, therefore we suggest you buy a number of teas or a slightly bigger volume per time.
Shipments can be traced and take between 5 to 15 days till they arrive. We will send you an invoice and the price will also be written on the package. If your country requires import fees or other taxes, then you're responsible for this.
Once shipped, we will send you an email or sms with the tracking code.
When tea grows in a natural and biodivers environment, there is no need for any chemicals or additives. Nature will take care of this tea. When you choose natural tea, tea becomes sustainable. Because every single area is different, there are unlimited varieties of natural tea.
When you choose handmade tea, tea masters can continue performing this art. Good tea starts with a natural environment, but tea leaves can't be made into good tea without an experienced tea master. Nowadays, most tea is produced in factories, but when you choose to order handmade tea, more tea masters can continue making small batches of unique handmade teas.
Terroir is the combination of factors including soil, climate, sunlight, local processing skills, that gives a tea its distinctive character. When a tea is grown naturally, you can taste the tea's origin.
