Seventh-Generation Master Dangzhen Pichu hand sculpts every one-of-a-kind piece, blends his own clay foraged from the mountains of Nixi, and fires each piece in traditional outdoor bonfires. Learn more >>

Nixi Pottery is a uniquely Tibetan pottery whose gestural composition and deeply apparent connection to nature are prized above all else.

The ancient aesthetic of this 2000 year tradition is a rustic style with unique elements – from surface crackling and swirls of silvery patina to pitting and rough texture in the coarse clay.

This holiday season, we are thrilled to bring in a new collection of hand made Nixi potter from Dangzhen Pichu and his Shangri-La Longba Pottery Workshop.

Our Commitments


Truly Sustainable Farming



Our partners strive to farm tea in harmony with their environments, leaving native vegetation and preserving wildlife habitats for a balanced ecosystem and healthier tea.


Beyond Organic

No pesticides, no synthetic fertilizers. Our partners utilize traditional techniques like crop rotation and organic solutions like canola and soybeans to maintain clean tea and truly sustainable fields for generations to come.


Economic Sustainability

Each of our partners sets their own prices. This way, each partner can afford to pour their lives into their work, and hand down a tradition to their children that is worth carrying on.


Community Reinvestment

Our partners are community leaders, founding cooperatives, starting schools, and inventing new techniques. When our partners make a name for their tea, the whole community benefits.
