Designed and manufactured by the famous Lu Yu Art Institute in Taipei, Taiwan, the "Humanity" tea pot is available exclusively from TenRen. This tea pot is part of the Taizhi Heaven, Earth, and Humanity Series from TenRen. The Humanity teapot features a repetitive design of the Chinese character for man. Lu Yu teapots are known for their outstanding attention to the fit and finish of the piece. The teapot has an inner convex sieve which helps to prevent tea leaves from blocking the flow of the tea through the spout. Made from red clay and fired at a higher temperature for high quality, the teapot is ideal for serving semi-fermented teas such as Oolong, King's, Pouchong, and Ti Kuan Yin.
Yixing teapots such as this one are prized by tea connoisseurs because of the clay's special characteristics. With repeated usage, this tea pot will acquire its own unique flavor and increased luster and coloring that contributes to the enjoyment of tea. After usage, rinse with hot water and avoid using soap and other scented products that may be absorbed by the clay. This tea pot is about 4.75 inches (12 cm) in length, 3 inches (7.6 cm) in width, and 4.25 inches (10.5 cm) in height. It holds about 8.5 fluid ounces (251 ml). Shipping weight is 0.83 lbs.
