Experience rest and calm with Afternoon Sun.
After every day of hard work, there is a moment of calm at noon. Families retreat to their homes for a short rest, away from the heat of the pounding tropical sun. Pond fish retreat to deeper waters, seeking shade from large and wise fig trees. Everything is calm.
Afternoon Sun is a teapot made from Yixing clay, named after the region it was discovered in—the Chinese province of Jiangsu, dating back to the 15th century. Yixing clay is famous because of its special ability to slowly absorb the flavour of brewed tea into its clay, creating a unique and more full flavour with each use. Dedicate one type of tea per teapot to maintain a consistent flavour and handwash without soap or detergent. Read more about the clay we use and how to care for it here.
We named our teapot, Afternoon Sun, to reflect its rounded southing form and warm earthy colours. The ritual of returning home after a long day of work as the sun begins to rest with you, slowly bathing you in golden light.
Afternoon Sun can hold 200ml of your classic pu'er, black or oolong tea.
