Why we choose yixing teapot

19 Jul

Yixings grow in value with continued usage. As long as you pour your initial cup of tea over the pot, then brew one to drink, the pot will form a glossy exterior and gain its value. If you’re going to get one, you might as well get something that will make the growing worth while. I think of these things like little pet rocks. An yixing teapot is something you’re going to invest a lot of time in raising. You’re investing your time into this thing: at the very least, it’ll hold your favorite flavors to give back to you. At best, it’ll hold memories of time spent with friends, loved ones- moments of your life.

Yixings are made with a purple sand clay, and this clay absorbs the tea flavours, seasoning the pot with prolonged usage. Hence, Yixings are recommended for use with only one tea.
