Those zisha teapots are made by Dilu Studio (check here to learn more about Dilu) in Jingdezhen. Each pot is made of zhuni and finished with an unpolished body, feeling grainy in the hand. The bumpy appearance balances out the traditional style to enhance the earthy aesthetic of the clay, giving the pot an unpretentious and natural look.
Each teapot holds approximately 160ml of liquid with multi-holes ball filter, making it suitable for any scale of tea session. As Dilu studio puts the functionality into the first place , the excellent pour feeling of their teapots never ever lets us down which triggers our passion to work with them unsurprisingly. As those teapots are formed by throwing instead of slab-building like most of yixing zisha teapots, it has more porous texture, allowing to absorb tea and create patina more quickly.
There are two teapots in stock,which are shaped a bit differently. Please refer to the photos to confirm the one you are interested in.Please note each 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.
