Angel's Comment:

The combination of vivid and cute goldfish and traditional teapot is not only a bold innovation, but also has auspicious meaning.

Goldfish have a very good meaning in China, especially the goldfish with red on top of its head, which has the meaning of “Hong Yun Dang Tou” (it means good luck is approaching). This Zisha teapot from TeaVivre is carefully selected the Yixing purple clay as the raw material and made by hand. The clay of the pot body is delicate and without too much decoration, which brings a smooth sense to us. One of the highlights of this teapot is the vivid and lovely goldfish of the lid, which not only deepens the whole design theme, but also makes innovations on the basis of traditional teapots, making people feel fresh and new.

Zi Ni is a kind of classic and widely-accepted Zisha clay in the market. It is refined by the Zisha ore digging out from the mine of Huanglong, Yixing, whose color is mature and stable. Zi Ni has high iron content; its breathability and stability are good. In addition, Zi Ni has the merits of small contractility and easy molding, which contribute to big Zisha items fabrication and become the primary clay for many Zisha makers. Teapots made by Zi Ni can be easily raised out the shiny color, and are very suitable for brewing light-roasted oolong tea or pu’erh tea.
