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.
