Yixing Zisha Shuiping
Floats on water
Volume: 94 ml (9.4 cl)
Weight: 71.2 gr
This teapot is made of dark, soft purple zisha clay. The sound of the cover on the teapot is neither low nor high pitched: the teapot was fired at a good temperature.
Nice craftmanship. Well balanced, it floats on water (Shui Ping is a seal in the lid). The knob is elevated and is easy to grab.
It has a single hole filter.
This classic shaped Yixing zisha is around 20 years old. It's a good fit for roasted Oolong, or raw puerh.
The seal under the teapot is 'China Yixing'.
