This clay is porous when fired and is ideal for the making of teapots. Over time, the clay absorbs the flavors from the tea and releases them later. The teapots have become popular in China since the North Song Dynasty and were traded to many countries.
Shi Piao Yixing Zi Sha Teapot is made of the same material with our Xi Shi Yixing Zi Sha Teapot. This Shi Piao Teapot has bigger capacity.
Elegant and fluent line, the proportion coordination, all show the beauty of the full state.
The body of teapot like the pure full round face of a beautiful girl.
The spout looks like short gun barrel which is quite spiritual. This is the best aspect to identify if a Shi Piao Teapot is spiritual.
Closely looked at the particle with different size, the bigger particle doesn’t mean rough and smaller one doesn’t mean smooth. Both has their advantages, the bigger one has good air permeability.
The inside and bottom of the teapot is carefully crafted.

Commonly asked questions
- Q: is the quality of the brewed tieguanyin affected by brewing smaller quantities in larger pot? I'd like to be able to use this pot for both 100ml and 200ml brewings but only if it doesn't affect the qualities of the brewed tea. Posted on 3/26/15 by marcia
Reply: Dear Marcia,
Thank you very much for contacting us.
Please do not worry. It is not affected. If you use one teapot to brew the same kind of tea, then the tea will be more smooth and tasty. Hope this is helpful for you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
- Q: When you use the word cook , do you mean steep? I am not sure what you mean by using the word cook. Posted on 12/10/13 by Bob Seward
Reply: Cook means to put the teapot into a pot which is on a stove. The pot is filled with clean water.
To cook the teapot can remove dirty dusts on the surface of the teapot, as well as remove the flavor of earth and foreign flavors of the teapot. If just steep the teapot in hot water, it will not be enough to remove the dusts and flavors.
- Q: Do you have an opinion as to the proper way to "break-in" a new Zi Sha teapot? Thanks- Posted on 8/24/12 by Charles Lloyd
Reply: For your teapot question, we tell you some advice:
1. Wash teapot with boiled water inside and outside to remove surface dust. Then put the teapot in a no-grease pot, plus three times the height of boiled water,and cook for two hours, so that the teapot earthy will be removed.
2. Put the cane in the pot(cane has been cut into pieces), and cook for 1 hour. Natural sugar cane, teapot unprecedented moisture.
3. Finally, put your favorite tea into the teapot, and cook for 1 hour. The teapot is no longer "lifeless" dead, reborn, absorbing the essence of tea.
