Description

This was a lucky find early in the Year of the Pig: an unused 210 ml pig teapot from a limited production run from Yixing Factory 1 in its latter years (Laser Label Period). I only have one of these, and have no idea if I'll ever chance on one of these again! This teapot has a 27-second pour and a 7-hole internal filter. While a lot of Western-market tea drinkers are obsessed with tiny pots with lightning-fast pours for 'gongfu cha' with pu erh, more experienced drinkers will understand the appeal of a pot of this size for pu erh and heicha (and perhaps even high roast oolongs) with a lower leaf ratio and longer steeps.


While I haven't tried this pot just yet, I expect it to be perfect for dry storage sheng and shou with some age, as well as clean heicha and high roast tieguanyin and Wuyicha, because the clay should be muting, but not too muting.

This is  great gift for someone who was born in the Year of the Pig, or for someone who just wants a festive pot for the year ahead!
