Yixing Clay Teapot (Purple & Red Clays)
This teapot is made of the mixture of two fine clays: the purple and the red yixing.
Yixing purple clay is best to be used with black, oolong and pu-erh teas. The purple clay is very porous and perfect for rounding these kinds of teas by muting the bitter or astringent qualities they may have.
The Yixing red clay which is used on the outside of the teapot is very rare, and so, is used scarcely to accentuate the beautiful design. While using this teapot to brew your favorite teas, you can truly connect to the culture behind Chinese tea ceremonies.

Volume: 8.5fl oz/250ml
