Yixing modern zhuni Junde Teapot
Strength and Elegance
Volume: 110 ml (11 cl)
Weight: 141.6 grams
The clay is 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 thin handle looks like a human ear. The walls under the lid are long and curved inwards. The knob is elevated and easy to grab. And the beautifully curved spout produces a graceful water flow that can be stopped by pressing on the knob. It was made approximately 10 years ago but is in new condition. This teapot has a single hole.
It performs best with high mountain Oolongs or fresh Baozhong. The scents of the tea come out strong and bright.
The seal under the teapot is 'Chun Shui Tang'.
