Help me find a similar yixing teapot?

by MarbeL » Dec 30th 19 1:50 pm

I recently purchased what I believe to be a yixing tea pot from the A-MEI Tea House in Jiufen Taiwan. Unfortunately it broke on the way home and they don't appear to sell them online :(

Can someone make a recommendation for a similar yixing pot? I'd be looking for something less than $100. I'd like it to have a braid from the handle to the lid if possible.

I'm finding it really hard to tell if a website is authentic to choose one myself... I don't want to spend $100 on a teapot that is mass produced and should only cost $5.

Hi, this shape is quite common and it's called 'shui ping'. So you can just google something like 'shui ping yixing teapot' together with perhaps the clay type you prefer to find alternatives. I'm afraid it will be hard to fine one with exactly the same print.
