The Yixing Teapot “Ai Li Xing,” with its Short Pear Style, is a masterpiece of subtlety and tradition. Crafted by the respected Master Ding Yaohong, this teapot is a testament to the timeless art of Chinese Gongfu tea-making. With a capacity of approximately 110CC, it is perfectly sized for personal use or for sharing a pot of tea with a close friend, ensuring that each cup is infused with the full spectrum of the tea's flavor.

The material of this teapot, "Zhao Zhuang Zhu Ni" (Red Mud from Zhao Zhuang village), is highly sought after for its rich, vermilion hue and excellent heat retention properties. It contributes not only to the visual appeal of the teapot but also enhances the brewing process, allowing the tea to develop a complex profile.

In our evaluation of the "Ai Li Xing," we consider several essential aspects:

  1. Appearance: The teapot's form is evaluated for its symmetry and balance. Its robust, curvaceous body is checked for any imperfections in alignment, ensuring that it sits perfectly poised. The color of the Zhao Zhuang Zhu Ni clay is assessed for its authenticity and natural sheen, while the scent of the clay should be pleasantly earthy, indicative of its natural origins. Any odors from packaging can be addressed by cleansing methods that include boiling water or brewing tea within the pot.

  2. Certificate from Author: Each of these teapots bears the signature stamp of Master Ding Yaohong, which sets it apart from mass-produced items. These marks can be found on the certificate of authenticity, the bottom of the teapot, the inside of the lid, and the underside of the handle. Occasionally, the interior wall may also feature a stamp or carved inscription by the master.

  3. Water Flow: The pour of the "Ai Li Xing" is meticulously inspected to ensure a smooth and rapid flow, which is crucial for precise control during the tea pouring process.

  4. Tea Brewing, Temperature Keeping: The teapot's efficiency in brewing tea and its ability to maintain the temperature is rigorously tested. A well-crafted teapot like this one should excel in drawing out the nuanced flavors and aromas of the tea, allowing for a superior tasting experience.

The "Ai Li Xing" is not just a vessel for brewing tea but also a collector's item that encapsulates the rich cultural heritage of Yixing teapot craftsmanship. It is an offering that promises to elevate the Gongfu tea ceremony to a contemplative art form, providing both visual delight and an unmatched sensory indulgence in tea drinking.
