Yixing Hungni Xishi Teapot
Volume: 90 ml (9 cl)
Weight: 76.1 gr
This teapot is made of very smooth Hungni clay fired at a high temperature.
The shape of this teapot is named after Xi Shi, the first of 4 famous Chinese beauties. She lived in the 5th century BC and was sent to a prince so that he would neglect his governing duties. Her seduction was a success and this prince would soon be overthrown.
The lines of this classic Xishi teapot are therefore very round and feminine. The only part of the teapot that could symbolize masculinity (the spout) has been 'cut short'!
The lid prolongs the shape of the body and alludes to the most maternal part of a woman's body...
The flow of water coming out of the spout is very smooth.
It has a flat inside filter with 7 small holes.
This teapot is approximately 10 years old and has some signs of previous use.
The curvy shape and the hard modern zhuni clay of this teapot makes it suitable for Oolong, Baozhong and raw puerh.
