Siyutao Ren family's 100% pure DaHongPao from HuangLong mine 4 DingShu Town Yixing

We continue our series on Yixing zisha clay, by looking at  DaHongPao, a kind of special top zhu ni.

What is DaHongPao clay?

DaHongPao is one of the most well-known kinds of zhu ni. It was originally mined from the now-closed HuangLong mines in Huang Long Shan 黄龙山 DingShu Town and is found when mining other zhu ni(Between the bai ni layers in the shallow Huangshi interlayer). The ore of dahongpao is easily identified by color,  referred to as “top red”. 

What is 100% pure DaHongPao clay?

When dahongpao is mined, it is mixed with zhu ni ore, which can not be classified by machine and is costly to classify manually. Therefore, the general market dahongpao contains a large number of zhu ni ingredients. However, the 100% pure Dahongpao  is sorted manually, using only pure DAHONGPAO ore, so it is  redder and close to 100% pure.
