Teapot: Yixing Clay: Balance
This beautiful little teapot is handcrafted outside the city of Yixing in China. The clay deposits near Yixing have been used to make teapots since the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279). Yixing teapots are considered to be the premier vessel for tea due to their ability to take on the flavour of the tea over time. For this reason, one should not brew different types of tea (black, green or white) in the same teapot.
This teapot holds 15 oz.
Yixing is considered by connoisseurs to be the best way to drink tea. Made from a red clay found in the Jiangsu province of China, these cups “season”, which means they take on the flavor of your favorite tea to enhance every cup. But for that reason, they should only be used for one type of tea (white, green, oolong, black, herbal) for the best possible cup.
