You Cheng: Dragon Egg ( Long Dan )
USD 118.00 – USD 118.00
Studio: You Cheng
Pot style: Long Dan ( dragon egg )
Material: Yunnan Jianshui Zitao
Capacity: 180ml ( coffee colour ) ~ 250ml ( black ) — capacity does vary from pot to pot, as do detail shape and design.
Long Dan is one of the traditional teapot forms that are most effective in infusion for its surface to volume ratio. The proportionally slightly taller form than its peers means relatively even slower heat loss and is therefore more suitable for longer brewing duration. Yunnan’s unique Jianshui Zitao gives this form extra meaning for the clay’s higher density. A great pot for green teas and those blacks and oolongs that you would steep there for longer time.
Packing: Tea towel pull bag in artist’s own collector’s case

This piece was acquired a couple of years ago at the old price. Shen’s fame has risen significantly meanwhile, and so has the price tag on his works. Our offer may well be perceived as the current broker’s deal.
