Jian Zhan artist and researcher Master Lin Xi set up the Taishou Jianlou Research Institute to study Han and Song dynasty tea culture and firing techniques. He is dedicated to reviving the lost ancient art of Jian Zhan through meticulous research, hand made glazing and clays personally excavated from Song Dynasty sites.

Unlike many studios, Lin Xi oversees every aspect of his work without help. He makes his own glazes, throws his own cups, and fires every batch personally.

This holiday season, we are thrilled to bring in a new collection of hand made teaware from Lin Xi, including incredible one-of-a-kind unique collector’s cups (while supplies last).

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.
