Like the fruit, she has an understated personality until you get to know her juicy self. The Kiwi teapot, crafted by Lin Yung-Hui, offers both functionality and elegance. It adds a graceful touch to your tea sessions, making every moment special.

Made from Taiwanese clay and fired at high temperatures, it's made to be versatile for brewing a range of teas. The clay enhances tea brewing, softening the water's texture. The resulting infusion is more delicious and texturally pleasing. Its unglazed interior is porous, absorbing the tea's oils, which over time, builds a patina that enriches the flavor of your tea, similar to how a cast iron skillet seasons with use.

  • Volume: 175 ml / 6.2 oz
  • Proudly made in Taiwan


About the Artist

Master Lin Yung-Hui has played a key role in Taiwanese pottery and ceramics since 1979, starting with his work in refining clay and porcelain raw materials used in ceramics. His real dive into wheel pottery began in 1985 after studying under Mr. Weng Guozhen. A 1989 trip to Yixing, meeting with the skilled potter Gu Jingzhou motivated him to dedicate his efforts to making handmade teapots, leading to the start of his Baigeng Pottery Workshop that same year.

With guidance from experts like Teacher Chen Maonan and Mr. Qin Wenlong, Lin improved his skills in making glazes and functional pottery. His roles in the Glaze Association of Taiwan and his involvement in major national exhibitions show his commitment to pottery. His work, the "Kiln Transformed Copper and Titanium Celestial Sphere Vase," has earned a spot in the Yingge Ceramics Museum, a testament to his skill and impact in the world of ceramics.


Common Questions

What type of tea is best to brew in a clay teapot?

Clay teapots are great for holding temperature and therefore are best suited for brewing roasted teas or vintage teas to better bring out the depth of flavor (versus glass or porcelain teapots). The clay is porous and the aromatic oils of the teas it brews. As such, we don’t recommend brewing scented or blended teas to avoid flavor transfer.

How do I clean my clay teapot?

Never use soap! Remove the brewed tea leaves (chopsticks help) and rinse with hot water until all the small tea leaves are rinsed out. Don’t forget to rinse the lid. Use your hand for tea stains, we don't think there is a real need for a scrub. Once it's cleaned, open the lid to air dry. Do not replace the lid until the teapot is completely dry.
