Handmade in China, our Gu Teapot is in the Fang Gu or "Drum" style and made from dark Zi Ni (Purple Clay). This classic design features a stout body and wide mouth with an unadorned handle and spout. With a max capacity of 230 ml, it is ideal for gong fu style brewing black and pu erh teas. Though it can be used for all types of tea.

Yixing clay is extremely porous and absorbent. Hand wash with warm water only and let air dry.

 

Fresh From Origin

The tradition of authentic Yixing teapots dates back centuries, with its roots in the Ming Dynasty. The distinctive red clay is renowned for its ability to absorb the tea's essence and offer unparalleled experience and flavor. The unglazed clay will acquire a patina from the tea's oils resulting in a shiny coating over years of use. Which is why soap should never be applied to its surface. Simply rinse with water and allow to air dry after each use. Additionally, it is customary that only one type of tea (black, oolong or pu erh) is used in each teapot, so as not to corrupt the purity of its flavor.
