Description

I've been waiting a long time to offer these for sale! This is a beautifully crafted shuiping teapot from a factory that started up right after the dissolution of Factory 1. Many of Yixing's best craftspeople ended up at this factory, and the factory's older (and current) teapots are beautifully and carefully crafted with excellent vintage clay. This shuiping is better crafted than any of my 80s pots, and perhaps my 60s pots too! Supposedly this teapot will balance perfectly when floated in water, but I haven't tried it yet. 


Please note there is some tea residue on the teapot in the pictures. It is my personal pot and has been used for brewing tea. You would receive a new one if you made a purchase: not my teapot, which I am very happy to keep using! The thin walls and good clay developed a patina surprisingly quickly! 

The pot has a nine-hole flat filter and a 16-second pour. At 97.4g, this teapot is surprisingly light. The clay isn't very muting, making this a perfect teapot for the best Wuyicha, tieguanyin, hongcha and pu erh! It might even work well with green teas, but I haven't tried that with zini clay, let alone with this specific teapot! 

There is very slight lateral play in the lid, but the airhole will stop the pour immediately regardless of the lid's position. This is perhaps the best modern shuiping pot you can buy for the money today, and the first time I used this pot with good Wuyicha, I was amazed at how well it brought out the flavor of the tea over porcelain!

Please note ordering one of these teapots may delay your order by a week or two.

Wholesale pricing may be available on these teapots! Please contact me for details.
