The zisha teapot is made by Dilu Studio (check here to learn more about Dilu) in Jingdezhen. Made of refined zhuni , It is polished and shaped exactly like traditional shuiping , but with another layer of interest to it at the same time , making it a great trade-off between tradition and modernity. If you are looking for an all-fitting zisha teapot , then you are in the right place.
The teapot holds approximately 120ml of liquid with multi-holes ball filter, making it suitable for solo or small tea session. As Dilu studio puts the functionality into the first place of all their work, the excellent pouring of their teapots never ever lets us down which triggers our passion to work with them unsurprisingly. As the teapot is formed by throwing instead of slab-building like most of yixing zisha teapots, it has a more porous texture, allowing to absorb tea and create patina more quickly.
Please note the teapot is not glazed on the inside, we suggest the user of the teapot devote it to a kind of tea for better “nourishing”. As the Zisha helps to retain heat well and facilitate the pleasing compounds released from the tea leaf, the taste of tea will be improved gradually after long-term brewing the same tea in the teapot. For these reasons, it shall not be washed using detergents, but rather water only.
