Yixing modern zhuni round Teapot
Volume: is 150 ml (15 cl)
Weight: 142.9 grams
The clay is high quality modern zhuni, a hard red clay with little porosity. It was fired at a high temperature: the cover produces a high pitched sound when it touches the body of the teapot. The details of this teapot show very good craftsmanship. The handle looks like a human ear. The knob is elevated and easy to grab. The walls under the lid are long. And the beautifully curved spout produces a water/tea flow that can be stopped by pressing on the hole in the knob. It was made approximately 10 years ago and has signs of previous use. This teapot has a single hole. It performs best with high mountain Oolongs. The scents of the tea come out strong and bright. The seal under the teapot says: "Jin Yi Yi Shi".
