Another classic shape of Yixing teapot - the teapot looks like a pear. The lid with the body is smooth and seamless, and completely integrated into one. The Pear shape is especially loved by oolong tea enthusiast who consider to be a must have shape for brewing Phoenix Dan Cong and Wu Yi Rock Teas.
The pot is made with high-quality da Hong Pao clay, fired at a high temperature with a narrow top, round body and wide bottom. The slightly bend spout would help the tea liquor pouring out smoothly. The 150ml size is perfect for Gong Fu Brewing.
All our Yixing teapots are fully handmade, we only have 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. If you have questions about the pot or more pictures, please email us.
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.
