Description

These 170ml teapots are from Lin's Ceramic Studio in Taiwan! Lin's was originally started by a university professor who sold his handmade teapots by the side of the road. He blended Purion clay to compete with Yixing clay, which had to be smuggled into Taiwan from Hong Kong at the time due to a trade embargo on Chinese tea and teaware. Lin's as a business has been a resounding success, and many people aren't aware of the company's very humble beginnings, or what Purion was and is meant to be!


Purion clay is a blend of terracotta and rock ore from Taiwan. The mineral profile is meant to enhance tea like good Yixing clay does. Purion clay contains iron and when you purchase a new Purion pot, you notice it changes color rather rapidly through use as the iron oxidizes! The rate of oxidation does depend on local climate, of course, but the oxidation will occur regardless.

These pots are ideal for well aged sheng pu erh: HK, Guangdong, Taiwan or Southeast Asian natural storage teas would excel in this clay if they have enough time on them. Robust shou also excels in these pots! You get a different experience from these pots versus YIxing hongni, so there are some teas that might be better suited to this clay versus hongni, and others that perform better in hongni. Clay teapots are like camera filters, so it's best to see what you think this pot works through trying different teas in it, rather than buying the pot to suit teas you think would work out. My friend and customer in FInland has tested one of these extensively over the last few months and found he prefers some teas in Purion and others in hongni, but of course, personal preference comes into play! I find Purion clay can bring out character you simply won't detect in other clays. I don't know why this is, exactly, but Purion always makes for very interesting comparative sessions!

Please note these teapots may come with glazed or unglazed lids, and production years may vary based on what I receive. If you have a preference in regards to glazed or unglazed lids, let me know and I'll try my best to ensure you get the lid type you want!
