from ancient zini quarried in Huanglong Mountain, Yixing
Yixing Zini Shuiping
Volume: 100 ml
Material: Original zini (purple clay) from Huanglong Mountain in Yixing City
Semi-handmade using a mold.
This Yixing Zini Shuiping Tea Pot is the same material and shape as the Zini Shuiping Wuhui, except that it has been naturally fired while the Wuhui has been fired using powdered charcoal as a natural glaze. The purple clay is original zini from Huanglong Mountain, which was mined decades ago. The clay is full of iron grains that are visible even to the naked eye.
The teapot is semi-handmade, i. H. the body of the teapot is made using a mold, while the details such as the spout and the handle are entirely handmade. The wall of the teapot is thin and delicate, which is a sign of Yixing handmade teapots (because machines usually only make thick-walled, heavy molds).
We recommend this zini shuiping for pu erh tea, oolong (better not for the green oolong), aged white tea, black tea, heicha.
