Zhuni Yixing Teapot, Xishi 西施 HuangYingchun Style 黄寅春款 by Wuyou Hall 150ml
This is an yixing teapot made from the rarer red clay known as "zhuni". As you can see from the photos, zhuni clay has a slight bumpy appearance. The clay will develop a shine from use. Zhuni clay is prized for it's ability to bring out the best flavors. It is also the most difficult clay to fire as it is more likely to break during the process.
This teapot is the HuangYingchun Style Xishi Pot. This pot holds 150 ml.
Preparation Before Use
Yixing Teapots should be prepared before using the first time. This is called "opening the pot". It removes the dust from firing the teapot.
We recommend rinsing the teapot under warm water two or three times, then filling the teapot with boiling water and emptying it out two to three times. After this the teapot is ready for use.
