"Si Ting" style tea pot is named after its creator by Lu Si Ting who was a famous pottery artist in the early Qing Dynasty. The body of the pot is resembling a pear or gourd with the long curved spout adding a balanced looking, and lid fits to the body perfectly.  The pot is beautifully finished with very smooth surface.  "Si Ting" shape teapot would be very good for brewing roasted oolongs such as Wu Yi Rock Tea and Phoenix Dan Cong, nice for Puer Tea for stronger aroma. 

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 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.
