A tribute to the simple perfection that is the tea leaf, the name "Ming Xiang" translates to "tea aroma." The graceful and elegant form of the teapot is a physical representation of the intoxicating aromas that tea gives.
The lid of the Ming Xiang flows elegantly to the body, creating a smooth, uniform shape. The rounder and wider body of this Zisha teapot gives more room for the tea leaves to flutter and dance, thereby helping to release more of the flavour and aroma of your chosen tea. Because of this, we recommend choosing teas known for their aromatic qualities to be brewed with this teapot.
Usage and care:
Rinse and season the teapot before use. Here's a quick guide to show you how. As the clay is porous and teapot is unglazed, dedicate one tea type per pot (or if you wish to take it to the next level, dedicate only one tea per pot). Hand-wash only with water and NEVER EVER wash with soap or detergent. The last thing you want is soapy suds flavouring your next brew.
