Semi-handmade Yixing Hong Jiangponi tea pot
Material: Original Yixing red Jiangpo clay, pure clay, not glazed
Volume: 160 ml
Yixing Gongfu teapot (160 ml) semi-handmade from the original red Jiangpo clay.
This red Jiangpo clay can be mistaken for purple (zini) clay as its color is very similar to the zini teapots. However, this clay is much grainier, sandy, and porous than a purple clay.
A longdan shape (dragon egg) is suitable for any type of tea, especially a ball-rolled oolong, as it has a thick belly (a larger space in the middle) so that the tea leaves can unroll and develop full volume.
It is a perfect pot for making Gongfu tea. Both for practical tea preparation and for aesthetic appreciation.
