This classic Yixing teapot has been handmade in a traditional shape. It is well balanced when pouring and practical for cleaning (with a special soft brush) as the wide mouth allows easy access. It has the potter’s seal (chop mark) on the base and inside the lid.
Ideal for Tea Brewing
Tea drinkers discovered Zisha pots to be ideal vessels for tea brewing. Not only does the semi-porous nature of the clay help to retain heat, but also absorbs the oils from tea leaves, subtly seasoning each teapot with the tea’s flavour and fragrance. The more you use your teapot, the better it gets. Its surface will become glossier and the color will intensify.

Our high quality Yixing teapots are hand made by experienced artisans, whereas lower quality teapots are molded with sometimes cheaper, alternative clay. You can see many low quality teapots in many teashops which usually appear in the shape of dragons, animals, or coins. Although they are interesting, they are clumsy and made from rough, crude clay that gives off a strong, unpleasant odor.
