Material: Jiang Po Ni(降坡泥)

What is Jiang Po Ni?

Jiang Po Ni is a unique and rare type of Yixing clay known for its fascinating history and characteristics. Discovered by chance during the construction of a road in the early 1990s, this clay is named after the “降坡” (Jiang Po) road construction project in Yixing. Due to its limited reserves, Jiang Po Ni is considered one of the most precious clay materials in the world of Yixing teapots.

Jiang Po Ni teapots exhibit a distinct appearance with a firing style that results in a deep orange-red color with yellowish hues. This distinct look evokes a sense of nostalgia, and with time and use, these teapots develop a rich, aged patina reminiscent of antique teapots from the Ming and Qing dynasties.

One of the unique characteristics of Jiang Po Ni is its heavy clay texture, which gives it a rustic, earthy feel. Over time, with usage and proper care, Jiang Po Ni teapots evolve in appearance and become more refined and dignified. The clay’s good breathability, high heat retention, and balanced water permeability make it suitable for steeping a wide range of teas, including oolong, pu-erh, and black teas.

Jiang Po Ni is cherished by collectors who appreciate the nuances of aged teapots, and it is often used for brewing teas that benefit from longer steeping times, as it allows for precise control of the brewing process.
