Angel's Comment:

This Zisha tea set has a plain but powerful design, perfect for both personal use and sending as a present with gift package.

This Zisha set consists of one teapot, six cups, a pitcher, and a stainless steel filter. The shape is the same as a Tian Ji teapot, inspired by a Tang Chinese poem, “Where I see but the endless river rolling by”. It is a traditional style of pot design, maintaining an imposing, powerful appearance: the spout, handle, belly, and lid all show solidity and simple functionality. It is a delight to use this tea set to brew a pot of tea on an easy day off, chatting about life with your friends.

Material

Zi Ni: Zi Ni is a classic and widely recognized Zisha clay on the market, refined from Zisha ore dug out of the mine of Huanglong, Yixing. This clay has a stable, mature color, a high iron content, and good breathability and structure. Along with this, it barely contracts when fired and molds easily, marking it as a good choice for large crafts and also the first choice of clay for many Zisha makers. Teapots made out of Zi Ni can easily maintain a lustrous shine, and are generally preferred for brewing light-roasted oolong or pu-erh teas.

Origin

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.
