6 cup Yixing clay teapot – Shui Ping Hu


This is the classical 6 cup Shui Ping Hu teapot.  Simply called ‘liu bei’ (aka 6 cups), this teapot capacity is about 90ml.  The term ‘6 cup’ refers to the standard drinking cups (during the 80s) used in Chinese tea brewing sessions where a cup was about 15ml size.

This teapot is made in the late 80s/early 90s and is new and unused.  Red Clay and single hole.   You get to own a piece of teapot history and enjoy the ‘magic’ of this teapot.  You will get a beautiful sheen from the teapot with regular use.   Many teapots collectors believe that tea brewed using such teapots make the tea more smooth.
