Dehua is one of the famous kilns in China. It began to burn celadon and whitewares from the Song Dynasty and the Yuan Dynasty and reached its peak in the Ming Dynasty. Dehua kiln is famous for its white porcelain whose ceramic body and glaze are perfectly combined. The glaze is white and green-tinted which looks like a typical glaze popular in the Ming Dynasty.
Since the Song and Yuan Dynasties, Dehua kiln began to export porcelain, spreading excellent ceramic culture all over the world. In the Yuan Dynasty, Italian traveler Marco Polo arrived in Quanzhou Port and mentioned in his travelogue "the city Diyun produces many beautiful bowls and porcelain". In Southeast Asia, the beautiful and practical Dehua porcelain has defined the local custom of "taking the leaf of the sunflower as the bowl, while drinking with hands."
In Europe, Dehua porcelain triggered a revolution in the kitchen and caused a wave of imitated Dehua porcelain. In Africa, the Dehua wares were unearthed in the large mosque on the island of Kilwa, Sudan cemetery, and some wares were also decorated in the temple building or tomb column.

What is the shelf life of bulk herbs?
Shelf life varies from one herb to another. A powdered herb will lose its properties much faster than a whole or cut herb. Those with volatile oils like peppermint will lose their freshness much sooner than those without the oils. Roots have the longest shelf life as they are much denser than flowers and leaves.
So, it's kind of difficult to give you a quick and simple answer. Most herb books have something to say on the subject, but they are not very specific. Just as we did, you will gain insight in this area as you get more familiar with each herb.
What is the best way to store bulk herbs?
In general, keep the herbs in air-tight containers, as cool as possible, and don't expose them to light unless in use.
Which is more effective - tea or tincture?
Teas and tinctures both have their individual advantages.
The potency of most herbs is much greater in a tincture. However, a tea can be immediately prepared and taken.
Also, a tea often has an immediate soothing or invigorating aspect to it (depending on the herbs used).
