Artisan Yixing Zisha Teapot Zhu Ni Shan Zhu Ding
Ding is usually a round shaped vessel whose form originated in ancient China and represents the spirit of prosperity, auspiciousness, and authority. It is widely used in royal buildings and Buddhist temples. It is a classic Zisha teapot, whose lower girth, in the shape of a round stomach bolstered with three bottom supports, conveys dignity, balance, and steadiness. It is also very practical for brewing larger loose leaf tea such as sheng puerh and white tea. This shape of teapot is beloved by many tea lovers. This teapot is hand crafted using genuine Yixing clay Zhu 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.
Handle with care. Hand wash only without soap and detergent.
