Description

After great success using a modern duanni pot with high fire dahongpao (the pot was bought from me on Instagram by a collector from Moscow, and I later realized the cute little 70ml fanggu is now irreplaceable), I was asked about using a duanni pot for aged pu erh. I decided to try this pot out after sourcing it directly from a factory in Yixing, and it has exceeded my expectations! This pot will work very well for HK and Guangdong aged pu erh (both raw and ripe), as well as higher roast tieguanyin and Wuyicha. This pot has a rapid 12-second pour, which is very desirable to Western tea aficionados. The nice, wide mouth also makes it very easy to load and unload, which makes it a pleasure to use.


This pot will reduce storage and roast aromas quite significantly, so if you'd like to taste your tea and reduce the aromas that come from processing, this is a truly great choice! 

I believe the 139ml volume of this pot is intentional. 140 would be a very unlucky number for the Chinese (the combination of 1 and 4 would mean 'certain death), so if you avoid 1s and 4s (as many Chinese people do), the factory has you covered!

Modern duanni can be very hit and miss. I tried another pot out shortly after I purchased this one and it did not meet my expectations, even though it was made from the same clay! I have a policy of only selling pots I have tested myself and approve of, and this one definitely meets my seal of approval! The first one sold before I even put these pots up for sale!
