Angel's Comment:

The simple and elegant shape of this pot vividly displays the beauty in the Xi Shi pot.

Xi Shi Yixing Zi Sha Teapot with elegant shape, natural beauty as Xi Shi (西施 the name of one of the four great beauties of ancient China) is a classic style which is the first choice for Zi Sha Teapot lovers. A common Chinese saying goes “In the eyes of a lover, Xi Shi appears”. This phrase means that everyone thinks his partner is as beautiful as Xi Shi, regardless of how they may appear to other people. It is believable that every tea lover and Yixing Clay (Zi Sha) teapot lover has his “Xi Shi” in his heart.

Xi Shi teapot is one of the most classic pots among many Zisha teapots. Its lid is full and plump, and the pot’s twist is in round and spherical form, making it easy to handle. The caliber at the mouth of the teapot is not only convenient for tea-putting during the brewing process, but also easy to clean the teapot after finishing the infusion. Generally speaking, the Xi Shi teapot is small and exquisite. Its classic small mouth and the beautiful inverted handle design make the whole teapot forms a delicate shape.
