The Dayi "Xi Shi" teapot stands as an epitome of Yixing teapot artistry, named after the renowned beauty Xi Shi, and designed to embody the elegance she represents. This teapot is meticulously crafted from Zi Ni clay, a type of purple mud known for its superior quality and the rich, smooth textures it imparts to the brewed tea. With a volume of approximately 180ml, it is the perfect size for personal enjoyment or sharing with a friend.
The "Xi Shi" teapot's classic design is characterized by its voluptuous curves and a low center of gravity, which not only make it a visual delight but also provide stability during pouring. The rounded lid fits snugly atop the pot, ensuring that the essence of the tea is captured within each steeping.
Proudly produced by the "Yi Gong Fang" workshop, which is owned by Dayi, every teapot comes with an official certificate validating its authenticity. This guarantees that you are receiving a product crafted with integrity and respect for traditional Yixing teapot manufacturing methods.
Furthermore, each "Xi Shi" teapot has passed stringent third-party testing for lead and cadmium, reinforcing Dayi's commitment to safety and health. This careful attention to detail reflects the brand's dedication to providing tea enthusiasts with not just a teapot, but a piece of cultural heritage that meets the highest standards.
Whether it's for a seasoned collector or someone new to the world of tea, the Dayi "Xi Shi" teapot is more than a brewing vessel; it's a statement of aesthetic grace and a testament to the timeless art of Chinese tea culture.
This yixing is my very first and I believe I chose right! It has high quality: the stamps on the bottom and on the holder shows the ceramic artist’s pretentiousness. The clay its finest quality.
I truly recommend it! It pours fast, holds enough water to share tea with 1-2 persons.
Pot works great. Pour is perfect, no dribbling, pours out fairly quickly. 160/170ml actual volume and holds heat incredibly well. Its stays scotching hot for a long time and i think manages to squeeze out a couple of infusions more out of a tea than with porcelain. Tea feels more round bodied and fuller tasting.
