This is Master Lin's interpretation of the Yuweng teapot. It's made with 朱泥大红袍, zhu ni da hong pao clay. The shape is outstanding with intricate details. All Master Lin's work are hand-thrown and made individually with functionality and design in mind. Each teapot holds its own unique characteristics.
Chaozhou red clay pots differ from Yixing not only due to different skills required for crafting, but also the clay body. When tapped, you hear a higher-pitched bell sound. The lids and walls of the pots are thinner, thus reducing the heat retention slightly making it suitable not just for dan cong and other oolongs, but also more fragile teas with brighter notes.
Season with your choice of tea. As always, never wash it with soap or anything other than water. I recommend rinsing with boiling tea water and wait for it to cool down before your first use.
