Song Tea & Ceramics: A New Tea-Tasting Room in SF

Ceramics at Song Tea in San Francisco | ~ The teapots are made from Zisha (which means purple sand in Chinese), a clay found in the city of Yixing in China's Jiangsu province. The process of making these pots is labor intensive: the clay isn't easily molded and the ceramicist must hammer it by hand. And because Zisha wares are unglazed, they retain trace amounts of tea from each use, creating a more complex flavor over time. It's important to limit the use of each tea pot to one kind of tea.

Anne Goldman's ceramics stop gallery clients in their tracks. Some are convinced that they are carved from coral outcroppings or canyon walls. (Lucky Street Gallery,540 Greene St, Key West)
