Yixing Zisha Jiang Po Clay Begonia Teapot (175ml)

 

This teapot is handmade using zisha Jiang Po Ni ( 降坡泥 ).  This pot comes in two versions.

 

Verson A featuring the sparrow about to rest on the branch of Begonia Tree with inscription " 青城红葉 " meaning a green city adorned by red leaves.

 

Version B featuring the sparrow is already resting on branch and playing with Begonia with inscription " 一花亦真 " meaning the Begonia is so pure & beautiful which the bird would even call it home

 

This Zhu clay Zi Piao is high fired at 1040-1060 degree Cel. and this batch of jiang po ni is a type of paragenic clay. It is a symbiotic body of "red mud" and "Benshan green mud". It is a natural mixture of two kinds of mud, not artificial synthesis, no miscellaneous impurities and chemical pigments. The true color of the mud mine is purple and green, and it can also be said to contain the original mine of "Benshan Green Mud".

Jiang Po Ni is well known for its soft mud and strong graininess. The teapot made of good and pure "Jiang Po Clay" will gradually transit to the color of a autumn fallen maple leave during the process of raising. The color is vivid and moisturized, extremely visual impactful. Jiang Po Ni has a extremely good ventilation which makes it best with Tieguayins, Rock Oolongs , Raw & Ripe Puerhs

 

This teapot holds approximately 175ml (+/- 5ml) and features a flat filter with 9 holes and tight-fitting lid. The walls of this teapot are relatively thin, but it allows for a very stable and comfortable hand feel that has to be experienced to fully appreciate.

 

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.
