Origin: Jing De Zhen, China
Artisanal technique: handmade and hand painted
Unique, playful, and artisanal, this tea pot is one of the kind coming from craftsman in Jing De Zhen city in China, which is the cradle of ceramics and pottery in China. It is kilned with high fire. This particular shape of the pot is known in Chinese ceramic terminology as "Si Ting Hu" 思亭壶, which literally means "Missing the Pavilion“, and it is originally and traditionally only seen with Yi Xing Clay Tea Pot. Every detail is painted by hand with a Chinese antique yet playful design depicting a summery scene of gold fish and lotus flowers in a small pond. This tea pot has currently stopped being produced by its potter, hence only a few are still left. Whether you use it for tea, or leave it on your table or shelf, it stands out to tell its fairytale eagerly.
This teapot has a medium volume of 150ml, which can be used as a Gong Fu Cha tea pot as well as for brewing other teas such as herbal teas and it can serve up to 4 people at a time. This is not a Yixing clay teapot, so it doesn't have any tea type restriction. We would highly recommend using this teapot for teas brewed with higher water temperature such as black tea, heavy roasting oolong tea, Pu Erh tea, aged white tea and herbal tea.
The tea plate is designed to go with the tea pot, and it comes separately or you can choose it with the pot together. We also recommend the Ivory Sun Flower Tea Cups to match with the ivory tone of the teapot as a set.
Tea pot dimension: height 3.9in, diameter 1.8in, volume 150ml
