Red yixing clay was used to craft this square shaped pot. The square is the hardest to make, but this one is smooth around the angles. This makes this pot much less expensive. The master took time to make the basic square shape, joining the handle and spout to the pot very smoothly. The lid is also a square shape, fitting together with the body perfectly. This a a subtle and stable pot, good for everyday use. You can brew any type of tea in this pot, especially small sized leaves.

You can use yixing pots to make any of your favorite teas. Just follow the description for each type of tea so you are using the right temperature water. You can choose a specific pot for making a certain type of tea based on the size, shape, quality and thickness of the walls. Never wash your yixing pot with soap, since it will easily absorb a soapy flavor. Instead, just rinse your pot with warm water after use. Though you cannot tell by looking at it, yixing clay is made up of tiny, individual sand combined together which creates a lot of pores. Yixing pots will absorb your tea’s flavor and begin to smell like your tea. If you use the pot very often over a long period of time, you will be able to pour boiling water in and get some of your tea’s character out. We suggest you use 1 pot to make 1 category of tea (puer, black, wulong, white, scented, yellow, green) so you don’t let the heavy quality of one type of tea affect the light and smooth flavor of another.
