Yixing zisha GaoQiang teapot
The volume of the teapot is 99 ml (9.9 cl)
It weighs 83.5 grams. Its shape is round and slightly flat. 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/high temperature: the cover produces a medium/high 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 will stop the flow of water when pressed. And the spout is nicely curved.
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".
