Those zisha teapots are made by Dilu Studio (check here to learn more about Dilu) in Jingdezhen. Made of refined zhuni ,each pot 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.
Each teapot holds approximately 120ml of liquid with a multi-holes ball filter, making it suitable for any scale of the 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 Yixing zisha teapots, they have a more porous texture, allowing to absorb tea and create a 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.
