A functional piece of art and future heirloom, these teapots are crafted and hammered by hand by experienced silversmiths in their workshop in Shenzhen, Guangdong.
The teapots are made using National Standard Certified 9999 Silver or 99.99% pure (see photos below of the silver bricks/slabs used to make the teapots). After the silversmith has melted and shaped the teapot, the silver is guaranteed to be not less than 99.9% pure silver. 999 is the highest market standard for a silver teapot.
The handle is made of ebony.
Care should be taken when removing the lid as silver is an excellent conductor of heat. Avoid touching the body of the teapot when steeping tea.
Taste is subjective, but we have found silver teapots are exceptional brewing vessels for black tea, and heavier-profile white teas.
Each teapot is unique and handmade, and may very slightly from the photos below.
Although we have tested the lid fit and pour and found both to be excellent, there may be slight leaking from the edges of the lid depending on how the teapot is handled and as a result of each teapot being handmade. We will not accept returns for this reason.
This teapot will be shipped with Express Shipping, either EMS or Private Carrier depending on shipping address.
