Description

I have two of these lovely teapots left: nice and large at approximately 225ml and with a pour speed of around 29 seconds. The inside of the pot has a nine-hole filter to keep leaves from clogging the spout. There is likely to be some variation from the volume and pour speed specifications of the first teapot I tested (in the pictures and now sold) since these pots are handthrown. These are excellent pots for aged heicha (including pu erh), or for larger sessions with roastier oolongs. If you like somewhat muting clay for other teas (green tea or hongcha, for example), then this is still great choice! Nixing clay is one of the best all around clays money can buy, and Nixing pots are truly excellent value.


I tested this pot with my Zhongcha liubao and found the tea to be much more flavorful in this teapot versus a Ruyao gaiwan. These are nicely made pots that pour perfectly, have perfect lid fit and you can completely stop the flow of the liquid with the airhole. The pots are also nicely (but not perfectly) polished: there is a miniscule amount of residual ash glaze remaining near the bottom rim of the pot.

This pot has the longest lid skirt I've seen on a Nixing pot to date. This is a practical feature that prevents the lid from falling off and also prevents leaks from where the lid meets the body of the teapot when pouring rapidly. Pouring too quickly can still cause a dribble, of course, as the lid and body of a teapot are never entirely sealed!

Nixing is a great alternative to Yixing zini, and due to the additives that are more often than not found in current Yixing zini, I would always recommend Nixing over modern zini unless you are able to check out your modern zini pots in person (and know what to look for)!
