Description

This beautifully made 100ml teapot is from Jingdezhen, the historic porcelain capital of China. This teapot was designed specifically for gongfu cha, and the half-moon style of the pot replicates a classic Yixing teapot design. The teapot has a fast 10-11 second pour, which makes it ideal for brewing oolongs and Chinese red/black tea in, as well as  for brewing pu erh that won't benefit from muting. While thin walled, the teapot should have considerably better heat retention than a gaiwan and there is much less risk of burning yourself than with a gaiwan.  The seven-hole filter keeps your leaves in the pot and prevents the spout from clogging, while allowing for a rapid pour, which is very important for serious gongfu cha. 


The teapot features the classic "sheep fat" glaze, which is a smooth matte glaze that feels almost clay-like to the touch. 

These are excellent little teapots and a great alternative to clay for the budget-conscious, or perhaps a serious tea drinker who welcomes the contrast to clay  to see what their clay teapots are doing for their tea! These teapots are excellent for serious tea appreciation with the finest teas and I particularly like them for lower-roast Wuyi oolongs and young and dry storage pu erh.
