This is a handsome and sturdy teapot covered with an eye-catching black and iridescent glaze. Following the contours of the ridged surface of the pot, the glaze alternates between bands of matte black and glossy polychromatic colors. Each side of the teapot sports a circular ‘indent’ which add a sense of whimsy to an otherwise classic shape.
The interior is fully glazed, so it is useful for steeping any type of tea that you like. Instead of a built-in clay strainer, this pot comes with an east to clean removable stainless steel mesh strainer. It also has a very wide opening and generous 18oz capacity, making it a great choice for steeping large leaf China green teas or light and voluminous China white teas, for two people. The handle is well proportioned, easy to hold, and has a thumb rest for added grip and comfort.
Please Note: Slight variations in the painting, colors, tooling, patterning and kiln effects of Chinese and Japanese teawares are to be expected. We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colors and subtle tones slightly differently.
