The Zhu Ni pots are small and thin which make the pots have a shorter heat storage capacity. The heat within the pot can be release to the outside easily. The body of the pot can easily interact and communicate with the outside environment and temperature, which gives the tea a better aroma and fragrance. The tea will also have a smoothly flavor. It is a handy tool use by women when brewing tea.
If Zhu Ni teapot hasn’t been use for a long time and the pot is completely dried, it is not recommend pouring boiling water directly into the pot bottom. Otherwise you might get a chance hear a cracking sound coming from the pot which is a painful experience to many pot enthusiasts.
The correct way to brew tea with a Zhu Ni pot is to cover the lid of the pot and allow warm water to wash down from the lid to the body of the pot. This allows the pot to warm up and reduce the temperature between the pot and the boiling water. After repeating this process for one or two times, you will be able to put water directly into the pot. You will not need to worry that the pot is going to crack since the pot had already warm up and can endure higher temperature.
