Mutton Fat Jade Side Handle Teapot (羊脂玉瓷側把茶壺, Yáng Zhī Yù Cí Cè Bǎ Chá Hú, "Mutton Fat Jade Porcelain Side Handle Teapot") - By popular request we've expanded our selection of Mutton Fat Jade Teapot styles. Renowned for its flawless beauty, matte luminosity, and excellent steeping characteristics, Mutton Fat Jade refers to a high grade porcelain from Dehua that is fired without glaze. High-fired and fully vitrified, these pots can be used with any kind of tea without taking on the flavor.
This tiny, 85ml pot is characterized by its elegant, tail-like tapering handle with a playful, ergonomic curve and hexagonal cross section. The wavy spout mirrors the undulations of the handle, and the pentagonal knob on the lid mirrors the facets of the handle. An exquisite, well-designed piece with an excellent pour, ideal for tea service for one or two people, or for use with very fine teas.
Sorry lefties, this one is right-handed. Perhaps one day we'll persuade them to make a left-handed version; until then, there are plenty of hand-neutral teapots out there, or you can practice your backhand pour.

Love the 85ml size, the satin finish, the handle, the pour, the strainer, the tight fitting lid, and the resulting brew! The handle is great for bringing the teapot to your nose when smelling the leaves, and the pour is so smooth. I like the porcelain for not altering the taste of the tea, making it perfect for any variety of tea. Super happy with this teapot and can't think of a single thing I'd change about it!
