Leo Teapot by LuYu


Designed and manufactured by the famous Lu Yu Art Institute in Taipei, Taiwan, the "Leo" teapot commemorates those whose birthdays fall between July 24 to August 23. The teapot has impressions of the lion's mane for the Leo. This gray teapot comes in a jewelry like case lined with yellow satin. 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 gray clay and fired at a higher temperature for high quality, the tea pot is ideal for serving semi-fermented teas such as Oolong, King's, Pouchong, and Ti Kuan Yin.

Yixing tea pots such as this one are prized by tea connoisseurs because of the clay's special characteristics. With repeated usage, this 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 teapot holds about 10 fluid ounces (295 ml). It is about 3 inches (7 cm) in length, 2.5 inches (6 cm) in width, and 3.5 inches (8 cm) in height. Shipping weight is 1.20 lbs.
