With continued use, the purple clay from which YiXing teapots are made will absorb the flavors of your tea, becoming more seasoned with each use.
Over time, the color, flavor, and aroma of your tea will develop a richness that is unique to each teapot.
For this reason, many people dedicate a specific flavor of tea or at least a specific type of tea to each YiXing teapot.
Made of premium ceramic, by high temperature firing. It's BPA Free and environmental, no toxic, no heavy metal and more healthy than traditional mug, perfect for coffee, milk, tea.

1.Pre-heat your YiXing teapot by filling it with hot water and then draining it.
2.Place one teaspoon of loose tea into the preheated YiXing teapot.
3.Fill with hot water and wait for at least one minute.
4.Enjoy your tea either by pouring it into a cup or by drinking directly from the YiXing teapot, which is the traditional way of using it.


Most YiXing teapots are intended to be used by only one person at a time. Their small size is ideal for a single serving of tea.
Historically, each person having tea would have his or her own YiXing teapot.

To clean your teapot, simply empty the leaves and rinse the teapot with hot water.
The natural properties of the YiXing teapot will absorb the flavor of your tea,
so washing it with soap would counteract the flavor-retaining properties that contribute to the appeal of YiXing teapots.

Innovation, the 18th century version – earthenware, stoneware and a camel teapot

Tea and teapots came to Britain from China in the middle of the 17th century. The teapots were made either of hard red stoneware or white porcelain and were extremely expensive, but by the 1690s enterprising English potters were producing more affordable copies. In Staffordshire, David and John Elers made unglazed red stoneware from local red clay. These ‘red’ teapots were imitations of the Chinese teapots from the province of Yixing. Gradually tea drinking spread from the fashionable and rich to the fashionable and aspirational. Demand for teawares increased, both imported from China and locally manufactured in England, giving the Staffordshire Potteries a huge boost as the area began to industrialize in the early eighteenth century. Enterprising potters developed their own range of decorative effects as they attempted to copy Chinese porcelain. This salt-glazed stoneware teapot has been painted in imitation of Chinese ‘famille rose’ porcelain. The term ‘famille rose’ describes a popular style of decoration used on porcelain produced in China in the 18th century for the Western market. Shells were a common decorative motif in the mid-18th century and several different models of shell teapots were produced by the creative Staffordshire potters at this time. More innovative new glazes were also developed that mimicked precious stones such as agate (shown in this teapot below). The unnamed Staffordshire potter who made this teapot has also added a Buddhist lion knob to the lid to enhance its Oriental appeal. It wasn’t just the glazing and surface decoration of teapots that saw extensive innovation, as during the middle of the 18th century the first novelty teapots were introduced. Factories had responded to widening markets and pushed developments in materials and techniques allowing production of moulded as opposed to thrown teapots such as this sitting camel teapot. This teapot is made in white salt-glazed stoneware and is modelled as a sitting camel, with its legs tucked under its body. It has been made using the slip casting technique. Slip casting using moulds had actually been invented 50 years previously by David and John Elers, but was revived to allow the manufacture of complex and highly irregular shapes in bulk. Slip casting involved thinning white clays mixed with calcined flint to a viscous liquid that was poured into hollow plaster moulds. Enough Staffordshire slip-cast camel teapots have survived that they are not all sitting on the shelves of museums – you can still buy one from an antique dealer or auction house if you have a spare £5000. Of course, in the mid-18th century more... Teapots like this one were mass-produced and sold through ‘Staffordshire Warehouses’.

The inside is unglazed, as is expected with Yixing teapots, so that with use, the tea will infuse into the body of the teapot and, over time, enhance the flavor of the tea.
