Lu Yu's Lamp

  • Inspired by an eastern oil lamp design, one could imagine it lit the way for Lu Yu to brush his essential Classic of Tea on rice paper circa 760AD. This partially handmade teapot is crafted from authentic Zi ni (purple clay).

    Zi ni clay has been procured for centuries from only the foothills near Yixing in Jiangsu province. Zi ni clay fires somewhat porous, and with continued use will retain a tea’s oils and essence.

    This teapot is finished in a deep burnt-umber brown.
