  • $342.00


Name: De Zhong

Capacity: 240cc

Material: Shi Hong

Shi Hong is the most magical and unique type of Yixing zisha clay material, with extremely high difficulty in kneading and crafting. It is the clay material with the highest mineral content among all Yixing zisha materials. Beneficial minerals such as iron and zinc are present in higher concentrations compared to other clay materials, making it highly beneficial for human health.

It is extremely suitable for brewing Liu Bao tea and aged tea.

Shi Hong has a low production yield and a high sand content, with low plasticity. It is not suitable for forming using a single mineral and is often mixed with other minerals to improve its color (hue and lustre) and viscosity.

It is difficult to shape and has a very low success rate when using pure Shi Hong to make Yixing zisha teapots."

石红,是最神奇,最特殊的一款紫砂泥料,练泥和制作难度都极其高。是所有紫砂泥料中含矿物质最多的泥料。其中对人体有益的铁、锌等含量均高于其他泥料。

极其适合冲泡 六堡茶、老熟茶。

石红产量稀少,含砂成分多,可塑性低,单一矿不宜成型,常打成浆泥,一直以来都与其他矿料配合使用,以提高成色(色感和润度)及粘稠度。

用纯石红做出来的紫砂壶,不仅难以成型,成品率也是极低。
