Polished White Jianshui Zitao Teapot - Shi Piao Style ~95ml
This is a true tea lovers teapot. This belongs to a special collection we commissioned in Jianshui to our exact specifications. Jianshui teapots are amazing to brew with. We believe the quality of the clay speaks for itself and had these custom teapots made to exhibit Jianshui clay at an affordable price. These are simple, efficient teapots made to be tea brewing workhorses. They are small in size and medium polished.
These are each handmade by a group of artists who work together. They are single fired and unglazed. This is a true clay which lacks any sand. The natural minerals in the clay will enhance the flavor of your tea. Jianshui is in Yunnan, and the clay used in these teapots comes from the same mountains that grow puerh tea trees. We appreciate that connection. We blogged about this unique town here.
Since these are handmade products each are unique. There are slight variations to each. Each teapot was hand tested by us before sale. The lids fit and they seal well. They pour fast and easy. They are ready to go!
The volume is an approximation. The volume of the teapot you receive may be 10% more or less. It will be pretty close! It's the perfect size for solo brewing or with a friend.
This teapot is polished white Jianshui clay and is in a 'Shi Piao' style. The white clay is more rare and therefore is more expensive. It also requires more labor to polish. This is why the cost is higher.
These are tiny teapots that will easily sit in a single hand. They measure on average 10.5cm from tip of spout to end of handle and are around 6.5cm tall.
You can purchase a hard box and embroidered bag for $10USD additional.
