The Chinese city of Yixing is famous for two things in particular: it’s purple clay and its handmade pottery. This authentic handmade Yixing Teapot
brings the best of what the city has to offer together in one finely crafted piece of crockery.
When Yixing’s purple clay is fired, it warms to a deep mahogany color that embodies the richness of the earth. Yixing teapots are famous among tea connoisseurs because the clay retains the slightest bit of flavor from every tea brewed, so over time it develops a unique flavor all its own that gets infused into every new pot of tea.
Experts recommend having a dedicated Yixing teapot for each type of tea - black, green, white, and oolong which you’ll not only want to do because of the flavor profile, but also because of the stunning craftsmanship of this teapot.
This Yixing teapot is completely handmade molded by hand, carved by hand, and fired by hand. The carvings, in particular, show the delicate workmanship of a true artisan. Each Chinese character is written with the utmost precision.
This teapot holds 120ml of brew, so it’s perfect for one person. It comes with a certificate of authenticity and makes a beautiful addition to any tea lover’s collection.
