Stone Dipper (Shi Piao) Shape

This teapot is crafted in the traditional Shi Piao (stone dipper) shape, featuring a minimalistic design and a symmetrical triangular body. This piece stands firmly on three feet, each precisely equal in size, adding both charm and balance.

Golden Duan ni Clay

The Golden Duan Ni clay used in Small Shi Piao Yixing Teapot is sourced from the Yellow Dragon Mountain in Yixing. Its natural ore is nearly white, but firing reveals an earthy yellow hue. To achieve the signature golden yellow color, only the highest grade Duan Ni clay (containing 6% iron or more) is selected.

This Yixing teapot is crafted with rare golden duan ni clay, making it an ideal vessel for brewing any type of tea. Over time, its surface develops a lustrous shine like jade with consistent use, while also enhancing the aroma of the tea.

Yixing Artist Li Xiaolu

This Yixing Teapot is crafted by hand by renowned Yixing artisan Li Xiaolu. Li's official seal can be found on the interior of the lid, on the handle, and on the bottom. An authentication certificate is also included.

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.
