Taihu rocks are a rare, porous type of limestone. Taking inspiration from these intricately magnificent pieces, artist Luo Zhi Min has created Taihu, which features a decorative top that has been hand sculpted and shaped to resemble the complex structure of a Taihu rock.
Taihu rocks represent the cosmic mountain, a realm that exists between heaven and earth. The tea brewed in this gaiwan will take you on a journey to the cosmic mountain, ascending your mind and spirit to the borders of heaven, before bringing you gently back to the realities of life on earth. Or, maybe it’ll just brew you some scrumptiously delicious tea that you enjoy because you love the simple joys of gongfu tea brewing. Same thing if you ask us.
