Puyuan 朴园 - Yixing Teapot in Dahongpao clay
High-grade yixing teapot, fully handcrafted with experience and passion by our trusty Yuan Weixin.
Each of his teapots has its own personality, which will improve over the years it will spend with you, brew after brew. This special yixing is one of his latest creations, made using Dahongpao 大红袍, the rarest kind of red clay. It is particularly precious as it is the last piece of pure Dahongpao Zhuni clay that Yuan Weixin inherited from his master 30 years ago.
Its purity enhances the hues of color of the red clay, that is soft and smooth to the touch. The internal filter, placed at the bottom of the spout, is composed of 7 holes, that ensure the purest liquor.
The teapot capacity is 120 ml (6.4 oz) and it comes with the artist's signed certificate of authenticity.
