For centuries in China tea has been brewed in small teapots now commonly known as Yixing
or zisha (purple clay). These unglazed clay pots hold from 4 ounces to 12 ounces (7 or 8 oz
on average). Yixing pots have a long and rich history and are often collected and treasured by
their owners. Each pot is a small work of art. Some pots designed by famous artists are truly unique.
This zisha clay has the unique ability to slowly absorb the flavor of the tea. It is unglazed and
kiln fired which also acts to sterilize the teapot. The porous nature of the natural clay plays a
role in the final flavors of the leaves. Over time the tea is enhanced as the pot becomes 'seasoned'.
