This is a 173ml Yixing teapot produced by Factory 1 during the White Label period (late 80s to early 90s). This is a great teapot, and I use one for young and aged sheng and shou pu erh quite regularly! These single-holed shuipings are perfect for Wuyi and black teas, and also fine pu erh that doesn't need muting. It would also work well with many white teas. If you've been looking for a good Factory 1 shuiping in hongni in a larger this is a great option! This teapot is unused and still had a layer of dust (visible in the pictures) from storage over the years. The dust rinsed right off when I measured the pot and tested it for pour speed (24 seconds). You can stop the flow of tea liquor from this teapot by covering the hole in the lid (useful to some people who prefer to stop the flow when pouring from cup to cup).

Please note there is a single dark spot near the handle. The lid knob is slightly off center as well.

This teapot was originally purchased from Essence of Tea. This teapot was shipped from Hong Kong to Malaysia decades ago, sold to a British tea aficionado, and then sent back to Hong Kong a few years ago! It's now ready for a new home! These teapots are in very high demand.

Lid fit is standard for F1 pots from this era (imperfect). What matters is the clay used, and the hongni used back then was finely ground and processed and it is less muting than 1960s hongni in my opinion!
