TWL Flat Shuiping Duanni
This teapot is inspired by the work of early ROC craftsmen, who produced very fine pieces in this shape. In particular, the “earlobe” shaped handle is directly modeled after early examples. The flat proportions are suitable for puerh but also work well for unrolled oolong teas such as yancha and dancong. The size is ideal for solo sessions, or for sharing with up to 2 guests using small cups. It is also a good option for high-ratio, chaozhou style yancha brewing.
Pleased with the results from our hongni commission from this craftsman, we decided to offer this shape in duanni as well. As for all pots bearing the TWL seal, we test the clay composition using EDXRF to ensure the absence of additives.
