- Fun Facts
- The English translation of the gold Chinese characters (hanji) on the back of the teapot is "light fragrance," which refers to a tea of extraordinary quality.
- This teapot holds 8 oz. of tea and is 5-1/2" in diameter (including the spout) and 5-1/2" high.
- The Lotus flower is regarded in many cultures as a symbol of purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration, and rebirth. The flower is a perfect analogy for the human condition: although its roots are in the muddiest waters, the Lotus produces the most beautiful and pure white flower.
- A small teapot is part of the gongfu tea ceremony or kung fu tea ceremony (Chinese: 工夫茶 or 功夫茶), which is a method of making Chinese tea involving the ritualized preparation and presentation of tea. Gong Fu Cha literally means "making tea with skill."
