Another entry-level Zisha teapot, with nice clay and workmanship, which is very cost-effective.
De Zhong teapot was created by Shao Daheng, a master of Zisha teapot in the Qing Dynasty, and is one of the classic Zisha teapot types that have been passed down to now. Its shape is inspired by an ancient percussion instrument -- "zhong", so the teapot body is mostly cylindrical, giving a sense of dignity and stability.

Material – Da Hong Pao (大红袍)
Da Hong Pao clay belongs to Zhu Ni, but with a relatively small output. Generally, only a few kilograms of Dah Hong Pao clay can be produced from one ton of Zhu Ni. In addition to the characteristics of Zhu Ni, Da Hong Pao clay also has very high iron content, so its color is redder. The appearance of the finished teapot is delicate and moist, and it is very easy to raise. With our daily use, it will quickly become more and more shiny.
