The water used to brew tea has a real effect on its taste. White Charcoal naturally purifies water by adsorbing chlorine and adding minerals to it; softening its taste and turning it into mineral water. In collaboration with MATIAS MOELLENBACH, we’ve combined the ancient Japanese tradition of Kishu Binchotan with various elements of contemporary Danish design. 650 ml. Limited quantities available. The teapot will ship in December 2018.
Start by rinsing the Binchotan under cold tap water. In order to sterilize the Binchotan, it needs to be boiled before use. Place the binchotan in a pot of water and let it rise to a boil for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, drain the water and let the Binchotan cool in the pot. The teapot is dishwasher safe.
After 1-3 months of daily use, your KISHU BINCHOTAN will not be active any longer. Once you've finished using it, nature will gladly take it back. An excellent fertilizer, just crush it and mix with potting soil where it will add nourishment and regulate the PH balance - so your plants can thrive and flourish and do an even better job of absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere around this planet that we love so much.
