The imperial kiln from Qianlong period, Qing Dynasty. Their products were often stamped with the emperor’s seal of “Le Shan Tang”, Qianlong’s library. The Family Peng is the family who has been taking care of the kiln for 8th generations. The traditional Jingdezhen hand thrown, hand turned and hand painted ceramics’ technique are well kept there.
For us, the Peng family’s porcelain ware stood out straight away for their pleasing shape and excellent porcelain quality, which avoid the plastic-ness that many low quality Jingdezhen porcelain have. These pots took a lot of back and forth with the Peng Family to commission but we are very happy with the result. They have a seven hole filter in the spout that allows for a smooth pour, while the base of the lid and the rim of the body are unglazed which allows for a good lid fit. We can recommend these pots for brewing all medium-large leafed teas.

An imperial kiln founded during the reign of the great tea loving emperor Qianlong (1711-1799). Their porcelain from this period is often stamped with the emperor’s seal of “Le Shan Tang”, which literally translates as Qianlong’s library. The Peng family have been looking looking after this heritage kiln for eight generations. Although the location of the kiln is in Jingdezhen, the porcelain centre of China, few kilns can match the Peng family’s skills with their traditional hand thrown, hand turned and hand painted ceramics.
