The arching handle of the teapot’s lid is designed to resemble the distinctive curved roof tiles originally from the Han Dynasty. This style of interlocking roofing tile is still used today.

The pot is made wholly from cheerful yellow huang duan ni Yixing clay. This particular pot has a matte smooth finish with a faintly grainy texture, and tiny grains of paler and darker clay can be seen evenly mixed throughout the clay.
