Care for teaware is a small online company, so everything is made in the incredibly limited runs. That means that any piece you buy here you are not going to see all over the places, only a few other people in the world might own one.
Any teaware that we get you have to clean it before you use it. There is quite a specific procedure and does take some time, you can’t use harsh chemicals or cleaning agents while you clean your teaware. I did it for you, all jars been cleaned and ready to go. Once you get yours in the post, you can put your tea on it, put it straight on your tea shelf!
