Yixing hungni tiny Shipiao Teapot
Volume: 30 ml (3 cl)
Weight: 40.6 grams
This triangular shaped teapot is made of porous hungni clay. This teapot is from the 1990s and has been used. This teapot has 1 small hole. 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 (so that they won't obstruct the spout). The seal under the teapot is: "China Yixing".
