A very well made "Fang Gu " style Yixing teapot is hand-made from Zhu Ni, when fired the clay has a very high contraction rate and low firing temperature.  The finished product is naturally glossy and silk to the touch. This teapot is almost ideal to brew any teas especially for Tie Guan Yin and Taiwanese Oolongs, or Puer teas. 

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

Please Note:
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.
