The Peacock teapot is a solid and robust Yixing teapot crafted to obtain the classic Xi Shi round shape. The delicately painted decoration shows a peacock treading in a colorful scenery of beautiful large flowers. The relatively small dimension, the thick handle and the short spout guarantee a firm grip for a precise performance.
Why do I need a Yixing teapot?
The material and the shape of Yixing teapots are ideal for brewing tea. They bring out the tea flavor like no other tea vessel. Hand-made Yixing teapots are also valuable handicrafts sought after by collectors. Their value raises with time, usage and artist popularity.
Yixing teapots are made of a rare and depleting clay mined in the mountains near Yixing, a city in the Jiangsu province. The high density yet porous nature of the clay absorbs the smell of the tea brewed in it. For this reason, it is advised to use the pot with only one kind of tea (for instance with black teas or green teas). Bring your tea to the next level; allow yourself an authentic Yixing teapot.
