Thiscute, Xishi-style teapot, half-handmade from genuine Yixing red clay, with hand-painted pattern of plum blossom magpie embodies the essence of traditional craftsmanship, a perfect winter themed teapot!
Sourced directly from Yixing town by us this year, the clay for this pot comes from the renowned Huanglong Mountain, known for its quality materials. Skillfully crafted by local ceramic artists, this pot is not just a piece of art but a testament to the rich tea culture of the region.
Thus hongni teapots are well-suited to teas which can benefit from the mollification of excess bitterness, roasting, and/or astringency, like (especially young) Sheng Pu'er or heavily-roasted Wuyi Yan Cha.
Its compact size makes it perfect for personal Gongfucha sessions or for sharing with a friend. Despite its short spout, the pot ensures a smooth pour, making your tea experience both elegant and enjoyable. The material is dense and smooth, provides good temperature isolation and is less porous then a regular Hongni. Embrace the ritual of tea with this exquisite pot, a beautiful blend of functionality and aesthetics.
