Genuine Yixing Clay Teapot

by adagio teas


  • This Yixing clay teapot is a handmade work of Chinese art, with a tradition going back thousands of years.

    It is made from rare 'zi sha' clay (purple sand), which is found only in the city of Yixing, in Jiangsu province.

    These often elaborate and whimsical pots are traditionally used for gongfu tea ceremonies, where tea is served in small cups over the course of many very short infusions.

    Ideal teas for this are oolongs and pu'erhs, although some black teas will be quite lovely as well. The unglased teapot will become "seasoned", absorbing the rich tea oils over repeated use. So no matter which tea you choose, it's recommended to dedicate a Yixing pot to a particular type of tea for best flavour.

    made from:

    Yixing purple clay. Capacity: 200ml


    12.5 x 10 x 10cm
