Chinese Covered Cloud Tea Leaf Container

About

Green tea grown high in the clouds of China’s Lushan Mountain is called “cloud tea,” and is famous for its beautiful thin leaves, fresh color, cool taste, and aromatic smell. The tea was so valued that it was used for many years as the tribute to the emperor. This elegant jar is the perfect container to hold the leaves of this exalted beverage, the crackled milky white glaze calls to mind the celestial clouds for which the tea is named.
