Apprentice Yixing Tea Pot

Apprentice Yixing Tea Pot

$ 55.00
Hand selected from the small studio of master artisan in a small village near the tourist-rife city of Yixing. She is training an apprentice in this centuries-old skill and is more interested in passing on her art than making profits. 
Attributes we look for in selecting clay tea pots include: 
  • Shape and balance in the hand
  • Clay density-weight and texture-contributes to flavor absorption
  • Arch, speed and consistency of pour. No dripping
  • Notice the top of the handle, spout and opening are in the exact same plane.
  • Multiple small openings inside at base of spout act as filter for tea leaves. 
This classic, simple pearl shape would be a perfect way to start your Yixing tea pot collection. It would be suitable for use with any type of tea.
Dimensions:
volume 7 oz/210 ml
