Yixing modern zhuni Siting teapot
The volume of the teapot is 115 ml (115 cl)
It weighs 98.8 grams. Its shape is called Siting.
The clay is modern zhuni, a 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 long walls under the cover are typical of ancient designs. The knob is easy to grab. The handle is shaped well and looks like a ear. And the spout is curved like a woman's leg.
It was made in Yixing approximately 10 years ago and is in new condition.
This teapot has a single hole.
It performs best with unroasted Oolongs or high quality puerh. The scents of the tea come out strong and bright.
There's a short poem under the teapot (A lady stands next to the river) and it's signed MengChen.
