The clay is good 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 is new. This teapot has a single hole.
It performs best with high mountain Oolongs. The scents of the tea come out strong and bright.
The chop under the teapot is written in a form that is difficult to read.
