Double Walled Dragon Jianshui Zitao Teapot - 200ml - Flawed :: FREE SHIPPING
This is an entirely handmade Jianshui Zitao clay teapot. It was made by the artist Yu Xing Ling. It is a double walled carved teapot with dragon and phoenix motif. Aaaaand it has a flaw. It has a crack under the spout, but it doesn't affect the steep or the pour. We were able to buy it for cheap and pass the savings on to you. This is still an amazing teapot! FYI, this is a heavy teapot!
This teapot is single fired and unglazed. Jianshui Zitao 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.
This teapot is 200ml in volume. ( Volume measurements are rounded to the nearest tenth. This may hold a few ml more or less. ) This measures 15cm wide (from tip of spout to end of handle) and is 9.5cm tall. This teapot comes with soft bag and a hard cover box.
There is only one of these for sale. The one pictured is the one that you will receive. This teapot was hand tested by us. The lid fits and seals well and the water pours fast and easy.
