Zisha teapots have been considered an essential brewing vessel for gongfu tea since the 16th century. They are highly valued for their ability to enhance tea’s aroma and flavour—the unglazed surface creates a patina that enriches the beverage’s taste.
This terracotta-coloured teapot is crafted from Zhu clay, which has a lower proportion of sand, making the material less porous so as to better retain the tea's flavour.
The teapot shows delicate workmanship, with the handmade swirl pattern evenly distributed from the knob to the body, as if the entire teapot were caught in a spinning motion.
This teapot comes in a gift box with a certificate from the artist included.
