Yixing Squat Teapot

Yixing Squat Teapot


Yixing clayware is a genre of teaware from the town of Yixing in Zhejiang province in China. Yixing became a hub for artisan clayware because the local soil and resulting clay have a special quality believed to optimize the flavor of tea. Yixing clayware has become legendary as a type of clayware that gets better with age--something like a well-seasoned cast iron pan. Hardcore tea afficiandos and tea Purists only use one yixing teapot to brew one type of tea lest the flavor residues seeped into the teapot sully the flavors of another type of tea.
