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. The clay has been aged for around 4 years. This clay is very versatile and is good for use with most kinds of tea.

This teapot shape is known as Pinggai Lianzi 平盖莲子. This pot is known as "half-handmade" as the sculptor uses a molding tool to shape the body, and uses his hands for the handle, spout, holes, and smoothing out the body. In fact, no machine was used in it's shaping as the use of the tool is entirely manual.

This teapot holds 180ml and 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.
