This large yixing pot’s classic simple design places the natural color of its rich deep golden clay center stage. This is a variant of yellow duan ni yixing clay, which is rarer than the more common red yixing clay. The clay for this particular pot is mixed with grains of lighter clay that give it a speckled appearance. This speckling effect recalls yixing clay’s other name of “purple sand clay,” named after the purple color of the raw sandy clay before firing. This pot has a built-in strainer behind the spout. Capacity 270 mL.

About Yixing Clay

Yixing clay comes from Yixing County in Jiangsu Province. This type of clay is prized for its high levels of iron. Many variants of yixing clay with different characters are sourced from different-colored layers in the soil. Natural colors include various shades and gradients of red, yellow, and purple-brown.

Like all of our yixing clay products, this pot is unglazed. The natural clay remains its original color. Yixing clay absorbs aromas easily, so just rinse it off with boiling water instead of washing with soap.
