The clay of this teapot is a 100% pure Huang Long Shan Qin Shui Ni, is common clay in Yi Xing. Qin Shui Ni could be literally translated as "Clear Water Mud" in English. It basically stands for those ore that is not "specially selected or blended" so the color and feeling of this clay is more primitive as well, which represents the classical character of Yi Xing clay. Unlike a Zhu Ni clay teapot, this clay delivers a more "general" taste to the teas, which makes this teapot a perfect companion for any roasted teas, black tea or pu-erh tea!
Volume is 120ml
