Authentic Old Factory Zisha Teapot - 125 ml.

Authentic Old Factory Zisha Teapot - 125 ml.


This is a rare pot from an old factory in Yixing, China where Zisha pots are produced.  These handmade teapots are superior to all other types for brewing tea. The special zisha clay (containing iron, quartz and mica, and found only in Yixing) from which they are made absorbs the delicate flavors of the tea and the teapot becomes more seasoned with each use. These 125 ml. pots are styled after early Republic pots in the early 1900's.  The clay is good quality aged clay. The pots are handmade - using a press mould for the body, with the spout and handle being made by hand and added to the pressed body.

We suggest using only one class of tea for each of your zisha pots as they will absorb oils from the teas, which will then influence future brews. By mixing different teas in the pot, the flavors become "confused."

Regular price $150.00
