Description

This little xishi is made with Guangxi Nixing clay, and is polished so no ash from the kiln remains on the exterior. While Nixing clay isn't the same shade of red as Yixing hongni (or modern 'zhuni'), the outstanding quality of craftsmanship of this pot and it's uniformly red appearance mean it blends in really well with my best red clay Yixing pots! These pots are beautifully crafted, and Nixing clay is truly excellent for a wide range of teas. 


Nixing clay is about as muting as YIxing qinqshuini clay, and really suits virtually any tea, including the most aromatic and the most highly roasted oolongs and the most wet-stored oolongs. Of course, there are better options for teas at the extremes of the ranges: I'd use Lin's Purion for high mountain oolongs and the finest dancongs, and I'd use more muting YIxing zini or duanni for really high roast oolongs or very humid-stored pu erh.

These pots have perfect lid fit and a perfect 16-second pour. These are first-rate teapots without cosmetic defects, and I highly recommend these xishi pots to anyone as a more economical (and less shady) alternative to the sea of commercial Yixing pots on the commercial market!

These pots have a flat seven-hole filter on the inside, which stops leaves from clogging the spout.

Please note only a limited number of these teapots is available.
