Eggplant Yixing Zisha Teapot
TeaVivre’s eggplant teapot is inspired by mature eggplants. Its body is like a plump round eggplant, with the smooth connection of the spout and the handle. The highlight is the teapot lid and finial, especially the teapot finial, which looks like a stem, adding a smart feeling to the whole teapot. In addition, eggplant means blessedness, and the eggplant-shaped teapot also means peace and happiness.
Material – Zi Ni (紫泥)
Zi Ni is a classic and widely recognized Zisha clay on the market, refined from Zisha ore dug out of the mine of Huanglong, Yixing. This clay has a stable, mature color, a high iron content, and good breathability and structure. Along with this, it barely contracts when fired and molds easily, marking it as a good choice for large crafts and also the first choice of clay for many Zisha makers. Teapots made out of Zi Ni can easily maintain a lustrous shine, and are generally preferred for brewing light-roasted oolong or pu-erh teas.
Yixing County is known as the Pottery Capital of China for its extensive 6500-year history of the craft. The area boasts abundant resources of argil, tea, bamboo, and charcoal, each of which contributes an important base material for the making of pottery. Yixing Zisha products have earned countless prizes both at home in China as well as abroad, with a few exceptional works presented as national gifts during international diplomacy.
