DESCRIPTION: Handmade by Huang Dan, an esteemed Yixing artist in Yixing, this Ming Shi Gong Deng Yixing Zisha teapot--as its name implies--resembles the shape of a palace lantern. Its prototype is a lantern, which was originally designed by/for an old villager in Tuntou village, and later on became a tribute to the palace. This teapot is simple, elegant, and old-fashioned in form. The pot has a slightly long body and a very unique spout. Its narrow and wide mouth perfectly echoes the body of the teapot; the whole teapot, itself, has a harmonic appeal to all parts, and its overall aesthetic embodies the sheer beauty in simplicity and restraint.
MATERIAL: Original color Lao Zhu Ni from Huanglongshan mine; at first sight, this particular clay is not eye-catching in its original mud color, though, with proper kiln firing, the clay has the ability to capture the high aromas of any tea, while adding its own charm during the process of brewing and seasoning. The clay certainly adds its own refreshing flavor to the tea.
CHARACTERISTICS: Huanglongshan aged Lao Zhu Ni vermillion clay feels soft, clear, and slightly sandy to the touch. The color of the clay will change to a moderately bright color when humidity is introduced. When filled with hot water, the clay color will transform to an alluringly glossy vermillion red. Lao Zhu Ni truly is a wonderful clay to behold.
CAPACITY: 90 ml, single-hole filter (comes with Taiwanese stainless steel filter)
