High-grade Yixing clay teapot in Qingshui burnt umber clay, 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 curved shape was first created in Qing dynasty (1644-1911), but it was originally inspired by the first Chinese emperor, Qin Shihuang of Qin dynasty - 秦朝 Qín cháo (221-206 b.C.) who unified China, together with its written language, currency, and weight measurement system (权 quán).
The character 权 quán has the double meaning of "sliding weight of a steelyard", which inspired the shape of this teapot, and "power, authority". Therefore, the name 权  Qínquán also means "the power of Qin dynasty".

On one side of the teapot the artist engraved the beautiful sentence 行义利德以从先哲乐天安命上及道人, which means "To do righteousness and virtue, follow the sage, accept your situation, and achieve enlightenment". 

The filter is composed of 10 holes, that ensure the best quality brew, and the purest liquor. It is made of Zini, purple clay, giving its signature dark colouring, with mellow purple hues. The type of clay and the shape are especially fit to brew red teas.

The teapot capacity is 270 ml (9.1 oz), and it comes with the artist's signed certificate.
