Rare Metallic Kiln Finish Jianshui Zitao Teapot - Long Dan / Dragon's Egg Style - 100ml #1 :: FREE SHIPPING
The Jianshui kiln gods shone down on us this day. Under perfect circumstances a gas kiln can produce a wood fired effect. A small handful of teapots in this custom order created this unique finish. We've never seen this result before. Nearly always this finish is polished off and these teapots will look like regular Jianshui teapots. We were at the kiln as it was being opened and got to pull these beauties out ourselves by hand. We made sure no one touched them or did anything else to them. They are perfect just the way they are!
The metallic finish catches the light and makes these teapots extra special. They have an almost purple hue to them. There is a slight roughness to the finish that makes them a joy to hold in the hand. We only have a handful of teapots that are like this. When they are gone they are gone.
The pattern on this one is unique and we are selling it as it is pictured. The teapot you see is the one you will get!
These teapots are each handmade. They are 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 cups comes from the same mountains that grow puerh tea trees. We appreciate that connection. We blogged about this unique town here.
This is a small teapot and is perfect for individual brewing or with a friend. This one is 100ml in volume. We round measurements to the nearest 10th so actual measurement may differ slightly. This measures approximately 10cm from tip of spout to end of the handle and is about 9.5cm tall.
This teapot will come with a custom embroidered bag and a hard cover box.
