A beautifully and elegantly "Ding" shaped teapot made by the young artist Huang Yu in 2022. One of his new work, fully hand-made with aged purple clay. The pot is super smoothly finished with the beautiful flow through the whole pot, and it already shows glossy and silk to the touch, and very easy to hold and pour. The teapot's shape was inspired from the bronze Ding vessels which were cooking pots reserved for offering of food to ancestors during the Shang through the Han(206 B.C.E.–220 C.E.) dynasties.
This pot will be a great one to use to brew any types of teas, particular for Puer Teas and any aged teas.
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.
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.
