Description

This teapot was a special request from an American tea vendor. I bought one for myself to check out and I found the teapot and clay to be of excellent quality. The clay is nicely high fired and the pot excels with all rolled oolongs. The dealer wanted this teapot specifically for Taiwanese oolongs, but it will do just fine with Chinese hongcha like JinJunMei or DianHong as well, and it can also be used with white teas. This teapot will also work well with raw pu erh maocha, but for pressed pu erh the standard recommendation is a flatter teapot of the same or larger volume than this pot.


This is an excellent teapot to have in your tea arsenal and beautifully crafted. This is a half-handmade pot and there is even a stamp inside the pot. The nine-hole flat filter keeps leaves out of the spout while allowing for a fast and complete pour. The pour speed is around 16 seconds when the teapot is full to the top with water.

This pot has shrinkage lines on the inside and texture that replicates the legendary zhuni of old. The pot weighs in at 180g.

I highly recommend this pot to anyone who enjoys rolled oolongs or hongcha! For the darker roast tieguanyins, however, I would go with zini, qingshuini or Nixing clay myself.
