Yixing hungni small shuiping Teapot
Small is beautiful
Volume: 80 ml (8 cl)
Weight: 97.5 grams
The shape of this teapot is called Shuiping. The clay is hungni, a fine red clay that was fired at medium temperature. The handle is nicely made. It's thicker on top and easy to hold. The lid, however, has a little defect. It's not entirely round, but it's one of those mistakes that show that it was made by hand. It was made approximately 20 years ago and is in new condition. This teapot has a single hole. It performs well with Hung Shui Oolong or aged sheng puerh. It smoothes and adds depth to the taste. The small seal under the teapot is: 'Zhong Guo Yixing' (China Yixing).
