Those zisha teapots are made of refined zhuni by Dilu Studio (check here to learn more about Dilu) in Jingdezhen. Formed into irregular shape by pinching the zisha clay (Zhuni) , they are characterized by the bumpy “wabisabi” appearances, manifesting the imperfect elegance and rustic simplicity.
Each 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 , 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 a more porous texture, allowing to absorb tea and create patina more quickly.
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.
