Mashalu Wood-Fired Teapot #5, 180ml

Fast pour and a good size for a lengthy session with a few good friends. 

This is a hand-made wood-fired tea pot by Taiwanese master Mashalu, whose name means "Thank you" in her native aboriginal home language.  It's not untrue to say that we searched many years to find just the right partner to deliver BTTC teas in just the right way. 

Although it may look like a glaze has been applied, this is 100% color by wood-firing,  Mashalu chooses the right wood species to give the right color to these pots through an extremely high-heat four-day firing known in the industry as "ash-fall" process.  It's not easy and takes the vigilance of four 24-hour days.   

Mashalu added a vacuum release on the side of the lid knob allowing you to press your thumb firmly on the lid when pouring out your tea.  It's really nice.   This one has a tight lid with no dribble on the pour.  Certified non-toxic dark clay.  

The color and texture doesn't really come out in the pictures.  Click to maximize and that will give you a better idea of the characteristics of this teapot.  

180ml capacity is approximate.

Note: Pictures may show slight variation in the actual color.
