Every tea aficionado simply must have a Yixing teapot
For the past 600 years, artisans in Yixing, China have been making teapots by hand from local clay. In addition to their fine craftsmanship, what makes them special is that the clay retains a little of the flavor from each pot of tea brewed.
With time, the teapot takes on a unique flavor of its own and infuses every new pot of tea with the tea that has come before. Tea connoisseurs recommend using a different Yixing teapot for each type of tea brewed: black, green, white, oolong, and puer to strengthen the flavor profile. There are no tea Yixing teapots with the same taste.
This 18ml Yixing teapot is made with purple clay, then fired to a deep sun bronze. This mini teapot is ideal for one person’s tea.
Your new teapot will not only be a collector’s item that signifies your excellent taste in tea, it will be a chic decor item that displays your fine aesthetic. Both beautiful and functional, your Yixing teapot will add flavor to your home and your teacup.
