Yixing modern zhuni Baotai Panhu Teapot
Pretty and delicate
The volume of the teapot is 110 ml (11 cl)
It weighs 60.8 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 good craftsmanship. The walls are extremely thin. The handle looks like a human ear. The water flow is fast, gracious and can be stopped by pressing on the hole on the knob.
This teapot was made in Yixing approximately 10 years ago and has signs of previous use inside.
This teapot has a single hole.
It performs best with unroasted High Mountain Oolongs. The scents of the tea come out strong and bright.
The chop under the teapot is 'Jingxi Zhou Fa Xiang'.
