Yi Xing Zi Sha Teapot - Jūn Dé 君德

100% genuine, handcrafted Yi Xing Earthy Red Clay / Zhū Ní teapot. Made by Master Zhang Hui 張惠 using 35-year aged rare clay foraged from the Yellow Dragon Mountain 黃龍山. Fired using the traditional dragon kiln methods.

The questions of "Where does it grow" and "how is it made" have always been the compass for us to identify best quality tea. So when it comes to bringing the best quality Yi Xing teapots to you and your future generations, we follow these two questions by inquiring about the origin of the clay and quality of the craftsmanship. 

Originality of the clay:

Our Yi Xing teapots come from the very origin of the best minerals for making teapots of their kind - Yellow Dragon Mountain.

Rare, aged quality of the clay:

It is incredibly rare to come across Yi Xing teapots using clay aged more than 35 years and foraged from its original source (The Yellow Dragon Mountain has been closed for recuperation since 2007).

Originality of the Jūn Dé teapot

Jūn Dé is considered to be one of the classic Yi Xing teapot styles, named after the clay pot master Zhang Jun De 張君德 in the Qing dynasty during the Qianlong period. Following the original choice of material, our Jūn Dé is made using aged 朱泥 Zhū Ní (earthy red clay).

True mastery:

Our Yi Xing teapots are made by the certified, award-winning, traditional Yi Xing teapot master Zhang Hui, whose works have been favoured by museums, critics and collectors across China.

*Given the high breathability nature of this teapot, we recommend dedicating 1 teapot to 1 type of tea only and pairing it with Master's Red, Master's Oolong, Bird King Da Hong Pao or Master's Black.


Why original, aged clay and impeccable craftsmanship are so important:

No chemicals & additives.

Better breathability to enhance the flavours of your tea.

Slow heat transferability, making it the best suitable teaware for aged teas.

Prolonging aromas of the tea.

The more you use it the more lively and luminous it becomes.

Antibacterial & rich in natural minerals.

A valuable collectible to be cherished for generations.
