Crafted By Lai Xiaohong
This beautifully-small Yixing teapot from master potter Lai Xiaohong was hand-made and hand-finished in the traditional Yuan Tiao form.
It is all too rare these days to find teapots in the 100ml-150ml size since they are harder to make than larger pots, but it is so rewarding to use a pot like this and be able to steep through the same leaves over a dozen times with a single kettle of water and really see the flavor and aftertaste develop.
Award-winning artist Lai Xiaohong is famous for her hand-excavated and blended Di Cao Qing clay, a rich, dense and mottled clay that Lai Xiahong blends from minerals settled in her trough after months of careful aging. The warm Di Cao Qing clay is ready to take on more depth and luster over a lifetime of use.
