Bamboo Charcoal and Pottery
Bamboo charcoal has many uses. Our premium grade charcoal is useful for the following: Improving the quality of water (put in teapot or water cask), burning as charcoal to heat your water, or store with your pu-erh to keep the humidity levels constant and absorb unwanted odors.
Bamboo Charcoal Pottery is based on an older tradition of making cups from simple fired charcoal bamboo end pieces. Bamboo Charcoal Pottery (竹炭陶) is a achieved through mixing of clays made from hyper fine ground bamboo charcoal and Hong Ni (red clay) mined in Yixing and other areas deep underground. Both the bamboo charcoal and clay used are free of impurities. In fact, the whole purpose of using Bamboo Charcoal Pottery is to remove impurities and hardness in the water you use. The molecular structure of the charcoal absorbs heavy metals as well as other impurities in water.
