This is an yixing teapot made from benshan lüni 本山绿泥, a rarer kind of Yixing clay (zisha) with a pale yellow tone. This clay is favoured for rounding out the harsher notes of some teas. It is very porous compared to other zisha and is better at retaining heat.

You can read more about benshan lüni clay, and other varieties of duanni clay, in our blog entry here.

This pot is known as "half-handmade" as the sculptor shapes the main body by hand using a moulding tool. The handle, spout, holes, and the finishing touches are done by hand. In fact, no machine was used in it's shaping as the use of the tool is entirely manual.

You can read more about half handmade teapots in our blog entry here.

This teapot was made by Lin Hanpeng and Chen Chunhong Studio.

 

Preparation Before Use

Yixing Teapots should be prepared before using the first time. This is called "opening the pot". It removes the dust from firing the teapot.

We recommend rinsing the teapot under warm water two or three times, then filling the teapot with boiling water and emptying it out two to three times. After this the teapot is ready for use.

Nice workmanship

Very nice pot with nice box. I find lunni good for oolong types of tea. Not that good for liu bao or cooked aged pu erh as it neutralise to many aroma. The pot is nicely build with solid water outlet.

My first Duanni pot.

My first Duanni pot. I've heard that Duanni is good for Pu Erh. So the first tea I made in this pot was an aged sheng. It was good enough to justify ordering another Duanni pot. So I did. The reason I ordered another one is because I wanted this one for Jasmine tea....and it works very well. Nicely made. Water fills to the brim without coming out the spout.
