Yixing Zisha Teapot - Da Hong Pao Ni (宫灯)
Capacity: 250 ml / 10.8oz
Tea pot name: Gong Deng or Palace Lantern , the typical lantern shape in ancient royal palace.
This teapot is made of Da Hong Pao ni, which is considered the highest quality standard in the Zhu Ni clay category. Completely hand crafted by master Xu Xiao Xing, who is certified artist sanctioned by the Chinese governing authority. Genuine 100% Yixing Zisha.
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. Only brew one type of tea per teapot.
