About Ru Kiln
Ru Kiln was an official kiln for making porcelain for the Emperor. They use temperature-controlling technique to create intricate cracks on the surface of the glaze; every piece will have a unique pattern. The cracks will absorb colors of tea, becoming more and more obvious as time goes by. Because of its elegance and uniqueness, the Ru-Kiln technique is still well loved by many people to date.
Wash it clean before the first use.
(optional) Soak in a plate of shallow tea to allow the cracks to absorb color.
Must dry it up thoroughly before storing teas.
