This lantern-shaped tea pot is made from rare light yellow duan ni yixing clay. The lucky sign of a fluttering magpie above a flowering plum branch adorns one side, hand painted in shades of naturally colored clay. The spring scene’s dark red, brown, and green colors contrast strikingly with the yellow background. The gently curved lid sits flush with the body of the pot, which is raised on a foot at the base. This pot has a built-in strainer behind the spout. Capacity 230 mL.

Note: Designs may vary slightly.

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.
