Volume: Approximately 185ml

Lin Hanpeng has reserved the remaining amount of tianqingni ore for limited releases. The remaining ore was handpicked from Lin Hanpeng's supply of TianQingNi ore for its purity. As this stock has less lipini (the ore found alongside TianQingNi), the finished clay has fewer lipini flecks (light white/yellow flecks on the surface).

The legendary TianQingNi 天青泥 was believed to be the finest purple clay (zini) in Yixing, and was prized above other kinds of zini for making teapots during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The clay is a dark liver colour.

You can read more about the processing of TianQingNi from raw ore to finished teapot here.

You can read more about the history of this legendary clay here.

TianQingNi is classified as zini and can be used the same way as teapots made of other kinds of zini (dicaoqing, qinghuini, etc.). It will negate harsher aromas and flavours – storage and smoky aromas among others – allowing the more subtle flavours of these teas to emerge.

The teapots are 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.
