Handmade Short Shui Ping Yixing Zisha Teapot



Yixing City, Jiangsu Province, China


100% Hand-made, so the body of the teapot may have handmade traces (Note: teapots of 100% hand-made can’t be exactly the same as shown on the picture. So it is normal that in a few cases the teapot may be very slightly different from that on the picture, however, the quality is always the same.)

Angel's Comment:

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

TeaVivre’s handmade Short Shui Ping Yixing Zisha Teapot is made of pure Zhu Ni clay. With its unique ear-shaped handle and smooth lines, the pot is comfortable to use and handle, and does not scald the hands. Another great feature is its straight mouth, in the classic positioning for a Shui Ping pot: this shape allows it to pour the tea smoothly yet powerfully, and with its natural connection to the body, the pot comes together for a graceful, coordinated appearance.

Zhu Ni usually appears reddish-brown in color due to its high iron content. It also is highly contractible, making it difficult to shape into a perfect teapot - because of this, manby products have some corrugations and slight deformities. This pot presents a distinctive double-pore surface with tiny corrugations throughout, allowing it to breath and reserve the fragrances of brewed tea. For this reason, it is recommended that only one type of tea is brewed with this pot.

Note: First warm the pot with hot (40-50 C) water before pouring boiling water into it, as Zhu Ni has a high constriction percentage and cannot withstand fast temperature changes.


Sun Wen is a young female potter born in Dingshu Village, Yixing in Jiangsu Province, an area famous for its pottery. Her parents are experienced craftsmen of the discipline, and served as inspiration for her interest in the art of Yixing purple clay from her childhood. She has always studied hard in order to improve and advance her own workmanship, eventually establishing a quaint, elegant style of her own, including words and pictures carved into the teapot to enhance its meaning.


Yixing County is known as the Pottery Capital of China for its extensive 6500-year history of the craft. The area boasts abundant resources of argil, tea, bamboo, and charcoal, each of which contributes an important base material for the making of pottery. Yixing Zisha products have earned countless prizes both at home in China as well as abroad, with a few exceptional works presented as national gifts during international diplomacy.
