There are many changes in the pot, but the first one is Piao.
As a classic among purple clay teapots, the Shi Piao teapot has been improved by many people and is divided into Ziye Shi Piao, Jingzhou Shi Piao, Honghua Shi Piao, Hantang Shi Piao, etc.
Today, Tongxinshe Tea House brings a "Ziye Shi Piao/Engraved Bamboo"
Ziye Shi Piao is a classic type of vessel jointly developed by Yang Pengnian and Qu Yingshao (ziye). The curve of the pot body is soft and smooth, and the overall view is the use of "herringbone" straight lines, forming a trapezoidal surface within the main perspective. The overall structure can also be regarded as a typical triangular stone scoop, which is very stable.
This Shi Piao is made of Jiang Po Ni and has a capacity of 150cc. Jiang Po Ni is a hard clay with natural breathability and clear particles. When sanding by hand, you will see sand but no powder. The body of the pot is covered with sand grains, varying in thickness and depth, giving it a strong grainy feel and a rustic taste. The mud material has good air permeability, which is conducive to the evaporation of tea properties, and also enhances the aroma of tea, making the tea soup taste more mellow. This is a Piao, with a modest and elegant shape and excellent practicality. It has a straight mouth, the water comes out directly, and the water is cut off neatly. The pot belly is slightly larger and evenly proportioned, giving the tea leaves plenty of space, which is conducive to the tea leaves stretching and making it easy to pour tea and clean. The lid and the mouth rim are closely matched with the main lines, and the simple and generous pot buttons make the entire pot shape full and tense. The three legs at the bottom make it more stable.
Engraving on the pot is one of the highlights of the literati purple clay teapot. Proper engraving will make the pot more charming. We choose bamboo with carved bridges. The bamboo is all over the wall and the lid of the pot. The knife skills are neat and not messy, and the bamboo bones are strong. Powerful, the bamboo leaves are free, criss-crossed, and dense. That kind of humility, integrity and noble soul can be seen in a few strokes.
This piece of stone tea is quaint and thick. It has already been soaked in ancient charm without being soaked. If it is soaked in tea for a long time, I believe there will be even more surprising changes.
