Handmade in China, our Zhao Teapot is in the Jing Lan Hu style and made from Zhusha (red clay). This striking design features a tall body and wide mouth with subtle embellishments on both the handle and spout. Refine and understated. With a max capacity of 220 ml, it is ideal for gong fu brewing oolong teas, as the leaves have plenty of room to unfurl. 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.
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.
