This maybe the most affordable piece of tea ware that is hand-built from Yixing clay. Excellent clay workmanship and reasonably thin edges at the opening for the lips. Ergonomically designed handle and a low center of gravity. A great mug for daily use.
Material: Coil-built zisha with high-fired glaze
Origin: Yixing, Jiangsu, China

Xanadu features a receptacle for round Yixing teapots for complete decantation of each round of infusion. Even if you do not use the Yixing pot, you will still find the wider opening a most convenient design for ease of use. A smart adaptation basing on a classic chahai feature.
