Purple Zhu Ni Clay

This Fang Gu Hu Teapot is crafted from a rare purple Zhu Ni clay, renowned for its unique red-purple tone. With a 190ml capacity, it is an exceptional choice to brew lightly fermented teas like light oolong, aged white tea, and raw pu erh. This elegant teapot is a work of art showcasing a stunning purple-red appearance.

Fang Gu Teapot Style

This teapot, 'Fang Gu Hu', gets its name from the imitation of the shape of an ancient Chinese drum - flat body, prominent belly, and tall neck. The teapot is created in the style of a renowned Qing Dynasty teapot maker Shao Daheng's work, thus the name 'Fang Gu', meaning 'imitate the ancient', has two layers of meaning, one being the imitation of the drum and the other of the antiquity style.

Yixing Artist - Wu Ronghua

Created by Chinese master artisans Wu Ronghua, this Fang Gu teapot is a remarkable addition to any teaware collection. Wu Ronghua, with more than two decades of experience crafting pieces, guarantees that each teapot is a unique work of art. The teapot arrives with a gift box and a certificate of authenticity.

Our design work is inspired by the artwork “Along the River During the Qingming Festival” by the Zhang Zeduan in the Song Dynasty. Instead of displaying the daily lives of people in the capital of China (as the original artwork), we display the tea making process of farmers through the same bird’s eye perspective.

When examining our packaging design in detail, tea enthusiasts will observe the tea making process, featuring tea farmers picking, drying, rolling, and frying tea leaves. The tea is then tasted in a pavilion and transported by horses along the ‘ancient tea road’.

Together, the traditional Chinese landscape and tea making theme, symbolise heritage, tradition, and respect for hard work of tea farmers.
