Angel's Comment:

This big capacity Qin Zhou Teapot with large handle makes it convenience to use, especially when brewing tea for several persons.

Nixing pottery is not glazed but natural firing. The clay is fine and smooth with good air permeability. Nixing pottery is rich in minerals, which produces kiln change during the firing process. The color of each pot may be slightly different during the kiln change. After certain time of raising/yang hu, the beauty of the teapot is easy to appear, the surface will become smoother and warmer with better colour.
