The flowing, cloud-like curves of this Yixing teapot’s design are as soft and smooth to the touch as polished jade. The wide mouth easily accommodates large-leaf teas and the high iron content in the clay holds heat particularly well, making this an excellent pot for brewing rock wulong and Dan Cong wulong teas.
This teapot is crafted from a rare specific subtype of Yixing clay known as Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) clay. Da Hong Pao clay has naturally higher levels of iron than any other type of Yixing clay. It’s known for its rich deep color and the bell-like sound it makes when tapped. Learn more about Da Hong Pao Yixing clay here.
