A small drum-shaped tea pot with the striking figure of a soaring eagle on one side and calligraphy on the other. Except for the red clay used for painting these details on by hand, the whole pot is crafted from dark and subtly colored purple-brown zi ni yixing clay with a silken shine. The wide mouth of the pot is excellent for accommodating large-leaf teas. This pot has a built-in strainer bulb behind the spout.
About Yixing Clay
Yixing clay comes from Yixing County in Jiangsu Province. This type of clay is prized for its high levels of iron. Many variants of yixing clay with different characters are sourced from different-colored layers in the soil. Natural colors include various shades and gradients of red, yellow, and purple-brown.
Like all of our yixing clay products, this pot is unglazed. The natural clay remains its original color. Yixing clay absorbs aromas easily, so just rinse it off with boiling water instead of washing with soap.
