Ideal Yixing Teapot

The Yixing teapot is a part of the ancient culture of China, a true artwork, an item indispensable to tea lovers.  Zisha clay, found in the Jiangsu province, is also known as 5 colored clay because it's basic colors are red, yellow, green, blue and purple.  The porous nature of the zisha clay absorbs the flavor, smell and color of tea that is brewed in it. 

One more feature is that the clay teapot conducts heat very slowly.  This means the teapot handle may be always grasped without the fear of burning.

Over time Yixing teapots develop a seasoning from repeated use, making the tea brewed from a well used teapot a special treat.  Because of this feature it is recommended that a teapot be used for only one type of tea (white, black, green, oolong or herbal). 

A simple smooth finish to this Yixing teapot called Ideal, give a classic appearance.  This teapot will make up to 10 ounces of your favorite tea.

Chinese Yixing Teapots are considered by some connoisseurs as the best possible way to step your favorite tea.  Enjoy.
