Genuine Artisan Yixing Zisha Purple Clay Teapot - Classic Shi Piao (Stone Bowl) 石瓢
Capacity: 280ml / 9.2 oz
Completely hand crafted by master Wu, who is a certified artist sanctioned by the Chinese governing authority. Genuine 100% Yixing Zisha Zi Ni. This beautiful tea pot has a classic shape of Shi Piao with a landscape on one side and Chinese poetic calligraphy on the other. It can be enjoyed alone or with up to six people.
Shi Piao means stone bowl in Chinese. It has a wide base, so it would be ideal for brewing Pu-erh tea, oolong tea, or any tea that has larger tea leaves.
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 clean 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.
