The Yixing teapot is a part of the ancient culture of China, a true artwork, an item indispensable to tea lovers. The special clay from which this teapot is made is called Zisha clay. Zi means purple while sha means sand. Zisha clay is also known as 5 colored clay because its basic colors are red, yellow, green, blue, and purple. The porous nature of zisha clay absorbs the flavor, smell, and color of tea that is brewed in it. One more feature of this clay is that the teapot conducts heat very slowly. This means the teapot handle may be always grasped without fear of burn. Over time Yixing teapots develop a seasoning from repeated use, making the tea brewed from a well used teapot a special treat. 1.75 pint capacity.
Etched Rose Yixing Teapot (Purple Clay Teapot), 6 oz capacity. This teapot is traditionally used to brew only one type of tea. The tea leaves are placed directly in the teapot. Over time, the teapot will become seasoned, as the porous nature of the teapot absorbs the flavor and aroma of the tea leaves. Ultimately, the seasoned clay teapot will enhance the taste, color and aroma of future steeps of the same tea.
