Di Cao Qing 底槽青 is one of the sub-categories of ZiNi and is mined from some of the deepest Zisha mines. 

Miss Fan has chosen the name Tian-Yuan Feng-Qing 田园风情 to reflect the teapots' natural style. By capturing nuances of nature seen in pumpkins, melons and squashes, this teapot reflects Miss Fan's own style where she emulates nature's simple and graceful lines.

Di Cao Qing clay is well suited to most tea types, especially those with a deep oxidise such as WuYi oolongs and puerh. 

All our teapots are authentic Yixing Zisha clay. To ensure this authenticity we source directly from YiXing (I-hsing) and the artists to ensure our customer's only receive quality Zisha tea ware.

Tea Artist Background

YiXing Teapot Artist Background

Fan Jing-Wei 范经纬 who goes under the artist name of Xiao Long Nv (dragon lady) 小龙女has been bought up in a family of Yixing potters. From a young age, Xiao Long Nv has enjoyed playing and exploring the world of clay. As a child she would often spend hours moulding small figurines and small animals.

Xiao Long Nv progressed through the Chinese arts and crafts schooling system, developing her understanding and knowledge of Chinese traditional sculpture and pottery. Under the guidance of her family and teachers she has developed her skills and own individual style which is characterised by smooth elegant lines and well balanced form.

In 2009, Xiao Long Nv took part in the 60th anniversary of China, an event promoted under the banner of "I love China, splendid China". As part of the event Miss Fan, together with Olympic opening event singer Lin Miao-Ke made a "Jiu-Sheng Na-Fu" yixing teapot.

Later in 2011, Miss Fan participated in events to commemorate 90 years of the Communist Party by creating an Yixing teapot titled, "Heart to Heart". The title was chosen to highlight the party's heart being tied to that of the people of China.
