This is a very special teapot. Wood fired Jianshui teapots are really gorgeous. They use a natural wood burning kiln to make these. It can take anywhere from a few days to a month of kiln time to finish. Most pieces do not last through the wood firing process. They break and are discarded.

Wood firing Jianshui clay creates unique patterns. The smoke and inconsistent heat create unique colors and patterns. Additionally the smoke carries pitch from the wood that can settle on the teapot and create a sparkling effect only noticeable when wet. It's quite difficult to take a proper picture of this. This is a unique teapot. It is one of a kind.

Jianshui clay teapots 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.

This teapot is 165ml in volume. It measures 12cm from tip of spout to end of handle and is 7.5cm tall. This teapot is thick walled and has some heft to it. It would be perfect for brewing shou puerh.
