Angel's Comment:

With fine workmanship and smooth and graceful lines it is a charming and collectable Zisha Gongfu Teapot.

Most people in Chaoshan, China like to use Zisha teapot to brew oolong tea. Due to the amount of the tea leaves and their volume after brewing, they need to put the teapot in a big tea bowl, and shower the teapot with boiling water, so that the hot water can preserve heat and stimulate tea aroma. Therefore, in order to ensure the teapot keep balance in the water, a tea maker specially designed a teapot with its spout upwardly and kept in a horizontal line with the opening part of the teapot body and the top of the tea handle, so called “Shui Ping Teapot”. This kind of teapot can keep balance when floating on the water.

Teavivre’s Handmade Short Shui Ping Yixing Zisha Teapot with pure and exquisite body is made with raw ore- Zhu Ni. With unique ear-shape handle and smooth lines, the teapot is comfortable for us to handle and does not scald hands. Besides, another great feature of this Zisha Shui Ping pot is its straight mouth, which also we can say is the classic place of a Shui Ping teapot. The straight mouth lets it naturally have the advantage of pouring water smoothly and powerfully, plus the natural connection with the body, it also makes the whole very coordinated and graceful.


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, for Zhuni has high constriction percentage and cannot resist instant temperature change.
