A charming, beautifully-made, fully-glazed inside and out, delicate little bone china teapot from Jingdezhen, the porcelain capitol of China. It is reminiscent in size and task to a Yixing teapot, giving this pot both style and practicality, but at a much lower cost.
Measuring just 2.75 inches in height, this little teapot is very practical for gong fu tea steeping. But as this teapot is fully-glazed, it will not absorb the flavor of the tea, so unlike Yixing, any tea can be steeped in this bone china teapot as the teapot will not influence flavor or retain flavor.
*Bone china is a very special type of porcelain. Because of its exact clay formula, bone china is finer, more elegant, thinner-walled, lighter in weight and more translucent than porcelain. Many consider it the most perfect material for glazed tea wares.
