$ 149.00

This is a handmade Jianshui Zitao clay teapot. The red Chinese characters translates as "Tea Zen". The pattern and Chinese characters are not painted or glazed. They are created with inlaid clay added before firing. It cannot wash off. The design is brushed on with ink first. Then using special tools the pattern is carved out. Utilizing special blends of the 5 different colors of clay available in Jianshui the color is added by pressing wet clay into the carved out patterns. After drying the excess clay is carved back to the original shape of the teapot revealing the pattern you see. 

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.
