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

This teapot was made of original ore lao zini (old purple clay) mined from No. 4 Mine in Huanglongshan Yixing. It has been aged for 8 years. This clay is very versatile and is good for use with most kinds of tea. Click here for more information on zini and tea pairing with Yixing Teapots.

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

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.

My first experience with a Yixing.

I did some research before buying because I'm aware of the numbers of fake and overpriced Yixing pots on the market, and landed on this one because it had a good price and also has all the features I like in terms of shape, texture and colour. It is unpretentious but very well designed. It has a good and clean pour, doesn't clog, the lid fits well and it just makes delicious tea. I'm not sure if I should have chosen a Zhuni pot instead due to my preference for fragrant teas, but this Zini doesn't seem to take away any of the fragrance. The size is great for just myself but also for occasional sharing with one other family member. I love holding it in my hands, the texture and warmth just make this pot feel alive!
