Yixing Terracotta Teapots
Each Yixing Terracotta Teapot from us is carefully selected for authenticity in Yixing. Yixing Terracotta is from Yixing clay and has a special mineral composition that does not exist anywhere else in the world.
Why use a Yixing Terracotta Teapot?
Yixing Terracotta Teapot are porous and retains the water temperature well. It absorbs the flavor and aroma of tea during brewing. After prolonged use, the teapot retains the flavor of the tea and a patina will appear, value of the terracotta will appreciate. For this reason detergent should not be used to clean teapots. Only steep one type of tea in a particular pot, so it will not changed the flavor that has been absorbed.
