A low, wide tea pot whose lid handle is carved into a fish leaping from the water. Made entirely from naturally colored yixing clay. Except for the pale yellow fish, the whole pot is crafted from the dark and subtly colored purple-brown zi ni yixing clay. The spout and handle are angular and six-sided. The wide mouth of the pot is excellent for accommodating large leaves. This pot has a built-in strainer 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.
