Genuine Yixing Zisha Purple Clay Teapot Golden Thread

 

  

Highlights

Fully hand crafted by artist Zhu, certified artist sanctioned by the Chinese governing authority. Genuine Yixing Zisha Hong Ni. 

Zisha is known to have the ability to absorb tea liquor and flavor. Over a period of time the surface of the tea pot can reflect the color and aroma of the tea that it brews and become glazed. 

A new Zisha teapot should be seasoned before use: soak the Zisha teapot in a steel pot, with the water fully covering the teapot, and boil the water for a half hour to one hour. After boiling has completed, carefully remove the teapot, and rinse. 

Capacity:   160ml / 6.8oz
