Yixing teapot has a long history in Chinese tea culture. They are typically quite small, ranging from 4 – 12 ounces (120 – 350 milliliters). They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with some being more traditional and others being more modern or decorative. Many Yixing teapots have intricate carvings on their sides or hand-painted designs on their bodies.

In this post, we will explore the 8 most popular Yixing teapots.

1. De Zhong Teapot

As a traditional shape, the De Zhong teapot has been highly appreciated for many years and has endured. It has a strict, standardized and precise expression. The artisan’s deep and solid technique allows for a more natural extension of each component. This gives the work a clear and distinctive charm.

2. Xi Shi Teapot

The body of the Xi Shi teapot is perfectly round and attractive. Above the integral lid, there is a red button decorating the lid, resembling the purity and clarity of a young girl. The small cherry mouth is a representative feature of Chinese beauty. Also, using it as the mouth of the pot is both imaginative and practical.

Han Wa teapot is one of the round Yixing teapots. It is one of the legendary eighteen types of zisha teapots designed by the famous Qing Dynasty painter-calligrapher Chen Mansheng.

Looking down from the top of the pot, the spout, lid and handle are like a jade belt running through the head and tail. The whole pot is round with a square in the middle and straight in the middle of the curve. This is exactly the truth of cultivation that the gentleman of tea is pursuing.

5. Gong Deng (Royal Lantern) Teapot

Gong Deng is also known as royal lantern. As the name implies, it was mostly used in the palace in the past.

Gong Deng is one of the traditional crafts of the Han nationality, which is rich in characteristics of Chinese culture. It began in the Eastern Han Dynasty and flourished in the Sui and Tang Dynasties. It has a strong oriental character. In the long history, the palace lantern has become a symbol of Chinese traditional culture and a beautiful dream of a nation.

6. Duo Qiu Teapot

Duo Qiu is a teapot created with the elements of a sphere. It was first seen in the Qing Dynasty.

At first glance, a Duo Qiu teapot is a bit similar to a palace lantern pot. But in fact, the subtleties are visible in the details. The body, the lid, the knob, and the handle are all uniformly in a round shape. Even the spout is designed as part of the curve of the circle.

The overall shape of the pot is very smooth and simple. It is hard to imagine that in the age of no computers, craftsmen were able to create an aesthetically pleasing piece by hand, from the geometric shapes.

7. Li Xing (Pear Shaped) Teapot

The Li Xing teapot originated in the Yuan Dynasty and took the form from the shape of a pear.

The pear-shaped pot has a streamlined body. With a small head and large body, the teapot is steady yet has a cute appearance.

If it is made into a small pot, you would better appreciate the comfort of this shape, which is great for playing with.

8. Shui Ping Teapot

The Shui Ping teapot is a very common pot type in Guangdong and Fujian. People used it for Gong fu brewing during the Ming Dynasty.

The Shui Ping teapot looks simple in shape. In fact, like its name, it connotes an obsessive symmetry in Chinese aesthetics. The spout of the pot is straight, facing the sky, and in a horizontal line with the top of the mouth of the pot and the top of the handle.

This also makes the pot suitable for the use of hot water showers in southern China. Even when the pot is floating in a bowl of hot water, the horizontal steady shape keeps the pot from tipping over.

Certainly, these are still a very small part of the many creative and beautiful Zisha teapots. Through their shapes, we can see the Eastern aesthetics of the “Great Truth Are All Simple”. At the same time, we can see that there is inspiration everywhere in life, and that a simple object can be a source of artistic creation.

This artisan characteristic is everywhere in the tea and tea sets. Drinking tea is really a happy thing.
