This teapot is made using Lao Zhuni clay from the best ore possible, at Huang Long Mountain, in Yixing, China. The clay is then taken to our partner studio, where it is crafted by master craftsmen, using the half- hand formation method. The porosity and mineral content of Zhuni (vermillion) clay, especially from Huang Long Mt, make it both incredibly rare to source, and even harder to work with and fire correctly, however when done right — creates an incredibly porous clay with amazing breathability — great for brewing any lighter tea, such as green, oolong, or what have you. The teapot has a wide base, allowing the leaves to unfurl properly— at 100ml, with a flat lid design, and made in the classic Shui Ping style, that dates back over 500 years to the Ming Dynasty.
We can order this teapot back in stock if requested.
