OOLONGS DESERVE A LITTLE SOMETHING SPECIAL
Something Like These Petite Clay Teapots

For a style of tea as artfully crafted as oolong, we recommend some artfully crafted teaware as well. Cley teapots are designed for multiples steeps, brewing small batches one after the other, so you can experience the flavor’s journey and learn the subtle changes in taste as the leaves open. The clay used to hand make these beauties is also said to enhance the flavors of the oolongs brewed within them. Ambitious collectors even boast having a clay teapot for each of their favorite teas, allowing the flavors and oils to build up over time. A built in strainer, right at the beginning of the spout, allows leaves to unfurl into the entire volume of the pot, leaving ample room for flavor development. Big payoffs with these little beauties.

MATE, WHAT’S THAT?

Mate is a South American tea made from the dried leaves of the Yerba Mate plant traditionally sipped through a straw from a small gourd. The beverage actually takes on many forms and is popular around the world for many reasons, but mostly the ‘body-high’ after consumption. Drinking mate also increases mental energy and strengthens concentration. Many athletes drink mate before they perform as it will help them focus on their body’s increased output.

Our mates have been sourced specifically for brewing in a teapot, with the aim of good flavor and body. Their taste resembles wheat grass with a nice strong vegetal quality, though it can be bitter if brewed at too high of a temperature.

While mate is not caffeinated, it does contain mateine, a mild stimulant related to caffeine. It boosts mood, improves quality of sleep, and can even suppress appetite.
