Dehua, Fujian is the source of some of the finest porcelain in China. Traditionally a center of sculptural porcelain, much attention is paid to the texture and quality of the unglazed clay body. 

Ice jade porcelain is made from very pure kaolin combined with flux in a specific ratio. This gives the pieces their luminous quality. Compared with our Mutton Fat Jade Porcelain wares, they are lighter, thinner, smoother in texture, and more translucent. Although it is unglazed, this high-fired porcelain is fully vitrified and doesn't need to be dedicated to one particular kind of tea. 

This ~170 ml teapot is a Dragon Egg pot, one of the most classical of teapot shapes. Its narrow mouth and tall profile makes it ideal for pressed teas such as Pu'er and aged white tea cakes, as well as rolled oolongs, red and green teas. This beautiful Dragon Egg pot features an incredibly fine, expanded golf-ball style filter for a graceful, powerful pour that is nearly impossible to clog. The feeling of the pot with its soft matte texture is irresistible, especially when it's warm. We dare you not to rub your face on it.
