Simple Yixing Teapot

This simple yet elegant zisha clay teapot was made by hand in Yinxing, China. The large mouth is ideal for big leaf teas such as Wuyi Oolongs or Puerhs. It has a clean pour and makes a fantastic addition to any collection.

Yixing is a picturesque city located on the Taihu Lake in Jiangsu Province in China. The town is famous for its clay teaware, which dates back to the Song dynasty (960-1279). Yinxing teaware is prized because of its fine, porous, and metal-rich clay, which is perfect for making teapots. The clay holds heat very well and because the pots are not glazed they absorb tea oils which make the teaware more lustrous and ‘seasoned’ with flavor.

It is said that if you use the same teapot with the same variety of tea for 50 years you will be able to fill it with water and tea will pour out. Do not wash your teacup with soap; just rinse well and let it become gradually seasoned with your tea tasting adventures.
