  • Swirled Lotus Yixing

    We love the low profile of this hand-crafted Lai Xiaohong piece. The wide body is great for fluffy teas like dancong and Wuyi oolongs, or sheng maocha. The sleek, low form is topped with a perfectly fitted lid, capped with a delicately sculpted lotus pod. The deep and beautiful purple zini clay is itself decorated with a swirled mix of naturally colored clays to create a pattern that mimics and mirrors the lotus pod.
