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 or teacup for just one type of tea, like rock wulong or sheng puer.

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