Description

This beautiful, thin walled teapot was crafted with great care to replicate the Factory 1 teapots produced from the late 50s through the 90s, but is crafted to a higher standard than the classic Factory 1 shuiping pots. This pot is nice and light at 112.4 grams. At 140ml, this teapot is the same size as my most used oolong pot, but in good red clay instead of the sandy 80s zini I use for high roast oolongs, which made up the bulk of my oolong consumption for many years. This teapot would suit the best Wuyicha, tieguanyin and Taiwanese oolongs, as well as black teas and young ready-to-drink sheng pu erh, as well as clean dry storage sheng and shu. I would avoid high roast teas and anything that has seen heavy humid storage, or shu with residual wo dui. This pot would also work well with many green teas!


This pot is half-handmade, like most Yixing pots. The two halves are formed into slabs and then joined together. Fully-handmade Yixing pots are much less common. Please note as with all handmade items, there will be minor imperfections, but in my opinion these imperfections just add to the appeal and beauty of hand crafted products. 

This pot is only lightly muting, and there is a 14-hole internal filter (flat) inside, which prevents leaves from blocking the spout. Pour speed is around 17 seconds, which is plenty fast in my opinion. These are top quality modern pots and the clay is excellent! The lid hole will stop the pour and the lid fit is perfect (no lateral movement).

This teapot ships in a padded box from the factory.
