Yixing Teapots Handmade

These teapots date from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and are both artistic and functional. These pots are collectibles because of their shapes that can be whimsical, animals, flowers, dragons or sleek and elegant. Natural minerals contained in the clay of the Yixing region of China produce a variety of colors when fired. These pots are unglazed, so they can absorb the tea oils to produce an amazing cup of tea. To receive the best benefit from this special teapot, consider brewing only 1 kind of your favorite tea in your Yixing.
