The flowing, cloud-like curves of this Yixing teapot’s design are as soft and smooth to the touch as polished jade. The wide mouth easily accommodates large-leaf teas and the high iron content in the clay holds heat particularly well, making this an excellent pot for brewing rock wulong and Dan Cong wulong teas.

This teapot is crafted from a rare specific subtype of Yixing clay known as Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) clay. Da Hong Pao clay has naturally higher levels of iron than any other type of Yixing clay. It’s known for its rich deep color and the bell-like sound it makes when tapped. Learn more about Da Hong Pao Yixing clay here.

About Yixing Clay

Yixing clay from Yixing County is prized for its high levels of iron, which holds heat and is said to improve flavor.

Unglazed Yixing clay absorbs aromas and flavors easily, and the tea you make in it seasons it over time. To keep within a similar flavor profile, most people dedicate a specific teapot for brewing just one type of tea, like rock wulong or sheng puer.

To clean, just rinse your pot off with boiling water. Avoid washing with soap.
