These handmade teapots from the city of Yixing are a long held Chinese tradition in tea.

These small pots are the preferred vessel for gong fu style steeping using local unique purple or red clay. Their magic lies in how the clay becomes seasoned over time and use, which enhances the tea-drinking experience. To assist the clarity of this seasoning, each Yixing teapot is typically reserved for only one type of tea.
