This is an Yixing teapot made from dicaoqing zisha, a dark brown-purple Yixing clay. This dicaoqing is original ore zisha from Huanglongshan Number 4 Mine. This clay is very versatile and is good for use with most kinds of tea.

You can read more about Dicaoqing 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.

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.
