Antique teapot was rumoured to be invented by a legendary potter, Shao Daheng, of the Qing Dynasty.
The shape of this teapot was initially designed to look like a drum, which has the identical pronunciation in Chinese as the word "antique".
Hence the teapot modelled after a drum became Antique Yixing teapot.
The key feature of Antique Yixing teapot is in the low centre of gravity characterised by the extremely wide body, which looks like a drum.
Despite its width, the body retains a streamlined shape.
The opening is extruded from the body to create a neck.
A good quality teapot with an airtight lid, where the air hole on top of the lid makes tea poured from the spout smooth and straight.
The flat shape reduces the teapot capacity and restricts the water circulation.
This reduces the roasted taste in tea leaves, making it perfect for your heavily roasted loose leaf tea.
