Yixing Teapots

Welcome To Our Yixing Teapot Offerings!

Yixing (pronounced “ee-shing”) Teapots first appeared in the Yixing region of China, during the Sung Dynasty (960-1279 ME). Since then, they have become the preferred tea brewing vessel of the Chinese and of tea drinkers worldwide. Yixing teapots are intended for individual use, producing 1-2 servings of tea.

The purple clay (Zisha) from which these teapots are made has unique properties, ideal for brewing tea. The unique color of the clay, sometimes augmented by pigments, are never covered by glazes on the Yixing teapot. The porous nature of the clay absorbs the flavor, smell, and color of the tea that is brewed in it. From repeated use, Yixing teapots develop a seasoning, making the tea brewed from a well used teapot a treat.
