Yixing Teapots

Yixing (pronounced "ee - shing") Teapots are made from a fine,
dense clay which is porous enough to allow air to enter,
yet will not leak. This is why the Chinese say that these
pots "breathe," thus giving "life" to the tea.

Please note: In general, most Yixing Teapots are small and are to be used primarily for Oolong tea.
Since the Chinese often make multiple infusions of tea in the same pot, there is no need for a large container.
Before ordering, please check the measurements as well as the volume of each Yixing teapot.
This informtion is listed with each individual Yixing teapot.
Thank you.


How to care for your Yixing Teapot: Using warm water from the faucet or tap, rinse Yixing teapots thoroughly. Never use soap or dishwashing detergents. In China many serious tea drinkers rinse both the inside as well as the outside of their Yixing teapots with some of the leftover green tea, and then let the pot dry in a well-ventilated place. In time, this method of cleaning produces a soft, glowing pearl-like patina.
