Yixing modern zhuni tall Teapot
The volume of the teapot is 140 ml (14 cl)
It weighs 108 grams. Its tall shape is similar to an egg upside down.
The clay is modern zhuni, a hard red clay with little porosity. This zhuni has a beautiful rough skin similar to pear skin. 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 knob is also slightly elevated, easy to grab and its shape is in harmony with the shape of the teapot. The handle's shape looks like a ear. And the spout is curved like a woman's leg.
It was made in Yixing approximately 10 years ago and has a few signs of use inside.
This teapot has a small, single hole.
It performs best with unroasted High Mountain Oolongs. The scents of the tea come out strong and bright.
The calligraphy under the teapot means a date and a person: "Winter in the year of RenCheng and made by Hui Yin Gong."
