The Art of the Yixing Teapot

Yixing teapots are collectible teapots made in Yixing, China. They are created from a special clay that is found only in the area around Lake Taihu in China. The clay, because it is made up of iron, quartz, and mica, is naturally a purple color. The clay, called zisha, retains heat extremely well, absorbs the flavors of the tea brewed in it, and, over a period of time, the pot is literally infused with the tea flavor.
