Time for some Zini beauties. Some call this egg plant, others call it bamboo knot. I see it as the combination of both. After all it doesn't matter what we call it, it's important that it performs well for your Gongfu Cha sessions. This is half-hand made from old Zini from the 90s. It pours smoothly and develops luster after being in service a few times. It keeps the aroma of a Pu Erh or Oolong well and maximizes what your tea has to offer.
