Angel's Comment:

Compared the round, soft and girly lines of Xishi Ying Teapot, Shi Piao Teapot has straight, hard and manly lines.

This fully handmade Shi Piao Yixing teapot(石瓢壶), a dignified and elegant teapot with simple and sturdy lines, and a triangle-like body. At the bottom, the three feet, just like three go chess pieces in an equilateral triangle form, make the teapot stable, simple and practical.

Heart Sutra (心经) is one of the classic Mahayana Buddhism sutras, which used the least words to express the essence of Buddhism, and is also an integral part of Chinese culture.

Material

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 before pouring boiling water promptly into it, for Zhuni has high constriction percentage and cannot resist instant temperature change.
