Yixing / Zisha Tea Pot – Ducks and Duckie

This Yixing / Zisha Tea Pot – Ducks and Duckie is a lovely hand made “purple clay” gong fu pot. It’s shaped in the liking of  mother duck(s) and the cutest little baby duck that seems to be riding on momma’s back, and makes  the perfect handle to lift the lid from the teapot. Mother’s tail feathers turn up in the rear to complete the pouring handle.

This gong fu style pot, has a 6 oz (175 ml) capacity. It has a nice pour to it and the colors include deep reds and brown, reminiscent of mahogany or leather. Ducks and Duckie will offer a interest and intrigue to your tea time. Is it one hen or two? That was our first question, then an epiphany- they’re ducks, not chickens, but the double head is a conversation starter!

The nature of yixing is that the interior walls of the pot are not glazed, which allows for absorption of the tea and for experiencing the complexity  of flavors. It is also recommended that each yixing is reserved for one type of tea, either black, white, green, oolong or puerh.

Never wash your pot with detergent, merely use hot water and let it air dry. The pot was never used and was encased in a glass display case for over 15 years along with a very large collection. Artists mark is stamped on the bottom of the tea pot.
