Yixing Duanni tiny Shuiping teapot
The volume of the teapot is 35 ml (3.5 cl)
It weighs 55.8 grams. This shuiping is only balanced without the lid on it.
This teapot is from the 1990s and has been used.
This teapot has flat inside filter with 7 small holes.
The very small size of the teapot enables you to brew a very concentrated and powerful cup of tea. That's why it's most suitable for well roasted Oolong, Baozhong or WuYi Yan Cha. For twisted leaves it's best to crush 30% of your leaves and put these crushed leaves first in the pot. Add then the whole leaves so that they'll serve as a filter that keeps the crushed leaves underneath.
The seal under the teapot is: "Yixing Zisha Gong Yi Chang Ding Chou Nian Zhi". Inside the lid, it says '2 cups' in Chinese. Below the handle it says 'Zhou'.
