This teapot's style is named as "Qu Yun", means line rhyme. the body of the pot is in the shape of a column and the lower side extends outwards to form a round bottom, the straight spout design to make water pouring very smoothly and fast.  The pot is made with a high quality Zhu Ni clay which allow the artists to make a fine gloss on the surface and delightful delicate red colour.  It has a tight-fitting lid and a smooth flow of liquid.  Not only beautiful and refined, but also very practical and easy to handle.  It will only increase in beauty as it ages.  

The pot is almost good to use for all teas, especially for ball-shaped oolongs and Puer Teas which would provide enough space for the leaves to open and release flavour evenly. 

All our Yixing teapots are fully handmade, we only have one of a kind in stock.

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 would 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 and let it cool down naturally; repeat for two or three times, your new Yixing teapot is ready to 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.
