Harney & Sons Porcelain Dragons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea from The Met Museum


The Met has partnered with Harney & Sons on this unique, art-inspired tin containing loose-leaf tea and displaying a detail from an extraordinary Chinese dish (early 16th century) in The Met collection. This warming elixir of black tea, orange peel, cinnamon, and cloves references the fiery might of the dragons painted on the Ming dynasty-era (1368-1644) creation in the Museum’s holdings. The trend of cobalt blue paint on white porcelain flowered in China during the 14th century, after which it was adapted by potters through the centuries and around the world.
