In short, it is "tender". Because of this, this kind of mud is very "delicate" when fired. It is easy to crack, so it is conceivable to complete a work of authentic Benshan green clay. Today, after firing this pure gold purple clay teapot, it has a yellow tone, delicate texture and elegant color, and the texture is like that of a baby. The skin is as smooth as it is "delicate", which makes it lovable. Although it is a small teapot, the tea making skills are not inferior to that of a large teapot.
