Copy of clay kettle and stove set 220ml / stove height 14.5cm
This collection of kettle/stove sets created during the summer of 2020 are specially designed replicas of antique Chinese and Japanese stoves that are often used by tea connoisseurs in Taiwan for a particular style of Chaozhou tea brewing. You may use them however you want to. Keep in mind that at around 200ml, the kettle size is rather small.
The reason for re-making this antique design is because of the charming quality of the stoves and because there are hard to find. The antique version is also very expensive as they can be hundreds of years old. They can also be fragile and are prone to breakage with use. The clay blend we’ve been using is much more durable.
One of the unique features of these kettles is that there is purposely no air hole in the lid. This causes the lid to chatter and makes a pleasant sound when it boils. You can view our recent Instagram posts to see and hear this in action. To achieve this, the kettle needs to be very full and the stove has to be hot. Some fanning may be required.
The photos will show all the pieces that come with that particular set. If you need a recommendation on where to purchase charcoal in the U.S. send me an email or pm me on IG.
