A simple but colourful teapot, with straight body and big open lid. It will be super easy to use, especially for brewing big leaves teas. This is pot is made with a unique clay, it's the artist - Zhou Shu Yuan's personal collection, she named as "colourful sand". The clay's quality is very similar to Jiang Po Ni but with more oily quality. The clay contains multi coloured grains with relative large size. Under sunlight, you would notice more colour and sparkling light of high concentration of mica.
There is only one of a kind in stock.
We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colours and subtle tones slightly differently. You will notice that the pot shows different colour under different light.
Preparation Before Use
Yixing Teapots should be prepared before using the first time. This is called "opening the pot". It removes the dust/sand from firing the teapot.
We recommend rinsing the teapot under warm water two or three times, then wipe gently inside and outside of the pot with a new non-scratch sponge scourer to remove sediment trapped in the unglazed clay.
Then, filling the teapot with boiling water, wait for 10 minutes, empty the pot; repeat one more time, the new Yixing teapot is ready for use.
Daily cleaning and seasoning
Empty the leaves after each use, rinse with boiling water, drain, wipe water away with clean soft cloth, and then lid off, place the body upside, let it air dry for one or two days.
Do not ever use any detergent or soap than water to clean the pot.
Do not let the potcome into contact with other strong smell such as cooking fume, cigarette smoke, perfume.
