Yixing Zisha Aged Purple Clay Ancient Bell Teapot (480ml)

 

This Ancient Bell Teapot is fully handmade with top quality aged purple clay. It is made into a ancient bell shaped and is big and musculine. On one side of the pot, there is an engraving showing an old man is pouring tea with his son. On the other side there is a poem saying "茶烟梧月書聲里 , 竹雨松風古韵高" which means The steam of the tea blends with the wisdom from the books, the sound of the moon, the bamboo rain and the wind make the rhythm.

 

The 30 year old aged purple mud is the purple clay of Huanglong Mountain. It was refining and aged since the 1980s, and its existence is limited. It is high fired at about 1180 degrees.  After firing, it is slightly purple and reddish inside , the color is mature and stable, dignified and solemn. After the raising,  there is a hint of imperial glaze in the simplicity which makes it one of the most popular clay type. It goes well with most teas including :Light Roasted Oolongs , Raw & Ripe Puerh, Black , White , Green Teas

 

This teapot holds approximately 480ml (+/- 5ml) and features a flat filter and tight-fitting lid. The walls of this teapot are relatively thick, but it allows for a very stable and comfortable hand feel that has to be experienced to fully appreciate. It also includes a certificate from the artist indicating the artist’s name, teapot shape and clay composition.

 

Zisha (‘purple sand’) describes the reddish-brown color of the sedimentary soil which settled in ancient lakes and is now buried deep underground. The clay is compressed under heavy sedimentary rock formations throughout the Yixing region, southwest of Shanghai, in China’s Jiangsu province. Huanglong Mountain near Dingshu township has been the source of high quality purple clay ore for centuries. The mountain itself is rather ordinary – neither grand or pretty – but it is 350 million years old.

 

These teapots are prized because their unglazed surfaces absorb traces of the beverage and develop a patina, which enhances the taste, color and aroma of fine tea.
