Yixing zisha GaoQiang teapot
The volume of the teapot is 130 ml (13 cl)
It weighs 100 grams. Its shape is round and tall. GaoQiang means 'long walls', because of the long walls under the lid. This is typical of older or more traditional teapots
The clay is dark brown zisha. It was fired at a medium temperature: the cover produces a medium pitched sound when it touches the body of the teapot.
The details of this teapot show good craftsmanship. The handle's shape looks like a ear. The knob is easy to grab and summarizes the shape of the teapot. And the spout is beautifully curved like the leg of a woman.
It was made in Yixing approximately 10 years ago. It's new and ready to use.
This teapot has a single hole.
Thanks to its shape and long walls, it performs best with rolled Hung Shui Oolongs, but can also be used with sheng puerh.
The seal under the teapot is "Er Pu Du Zhi".
