Purple sand teapot, Purple clay teapot, YiXing teapot, Yixing Zisha teapot
This is a Yixing Zisha teapot made of the premium Zisha clay Da Hong Pao, in a classic design of Xishi.
The teapot is hand made by Zisha artist Li-Yu-Min, decorated with authentic bamboo art and Chinese calligraphy. It is a teapot that captures many beautiful aspects of Yixing Zisha artwork: rich red colour, silky Da Hong Pao clay combined with the full body outline design, a steady classic base and a sleek and uninterrupted water pouring motion.
'Xi-Shi-Hu' is a classic Chinese teapot design, named after the ancient Chinese beauty 'Xi-Shi'. This teapot design has classically a round shape with a very smooth outline and short sprout. It is an art work of simplicity, authenticity and oriental legacy.
Da Hong Pao is an exclusive Zisha clay produced in the Yixing area of the Jiang-Su Province, Chian. It's production started from the Ming-Qing Dynasty and the natural reserve of the clay is limited.
The production of Da Hong Pao teapots is labour intensive, from the start (preparation of the clay) to the finish. For example, it is reported if a clay is prepared by a machine instead of hand mixing, this substitute itself will demolish the classic and artistic 'pear skin' appearance of the surface, and reduce the water absorbance of the clay from 3-5% down to 1%.
Once made, a Da Hong Pao Zisha teapot displays a stunning scarlet red colour with a rich yet natural shine and apparent clay granule surface.
A Da Hong Pao Zisha teapot is believed to be superior in various aspects for brewing Oolong teas and Pu-erh teas. It is truly a teapot to treasure and enjoy.
ZiSha teapot is traditionally used as the premium tea vessel to brew premium Chinese teas. For more information, please visit: YiXing ZiSha teapot
