Angel's Comment:

Lotus seed teapot is a classical style Zisha teapot, which is loved by modern tea friends for its good moral and simple design.

The shape of lotus seed teapot is popular among modern people. It is named lotus seed teapot because its appearance looks like a piece of full lotus seed, which has many derivatives, like Ru Yi Lotus Seed Teapot, Niu Gai Lotus Seed Teapot and our Teavivre Ping Gai Lotus Seed Teapot. The different shapes of lotus seed teapot families also confirm the Buddhist word “the shapes of lotus seed teapots is formed through the makers’ thoughts, and the makers can make many kinds of teapots based on their thoughts”.

Lotus Seed Teapot Dimensions


Because of the high iron content, the Zhuni teapot usually appeares reddish brown color, which is an attractive color to many tea lovers. And Zhuni has high contractibility, this made it very difficult to shape the perfect teapot, therefore even many finished products have with some corrugations. However, a well nurtured Yixing teapot will become smoother and glossier as time goes by.

The yixing teapot presents distinctive double pore surface covered with tiny corrugations on it, which makes the teapot able to breathe and reserves fragrance of tea. Therefore we recommend brewing one type of tea with one teapot.

Note: Warm the teapot with 40℃ - 50℃ water before pouring boiling water promptly into it, especially in cold winter. Because Zhuni has high constriction percentage and cannot resist instant temperature change. Yixing Teapot is fragile, please handle with care.
