Yixing the purple clay tea pot The yixing purple clay teapot is reputed for its unique material and characteristics as tea inside it does not seep through although no glaze is applied on its surface. Tea brewed in it tastes rich and mellow and as the teapot is porous, tea doesn't decay or change its color when kept, it retains its full flavour because the base clay is odorless. The teapot doesn't crack when heated on a stove or when boiling water is poured in, actually the longer it is used the more refined and classic it looks and the tea more fragrant. Yixing tea pots are made by using a special unglazed Zisha clay. Zisha, or purple clay is found throughout the Southern area of the Yixing region. The particular qualities of this clay substance set the Yixing apart from other unglazed earthenware teapots. Geologists have pinpointed the origin of Zisha in the area compressed sedimentary lake deposits and there are actually three different varieties. The most common of these are the Zini or rose-brown clays. The other two more rare clays are know as creamy white to light-brown clays and Zhuni or red clays. Chemically, all are composed primarily of quartz, kaolin and mica and contain high amounts of iron oxide, which lends the clays their purple-red color. Zisha clays are also fairly sandy. Each pot each is shaped by hand on a potter wheel and left unglazed, both because it makes better tea and because it allows the color of the clay to shine through. When properly refined and fired to a high temperature, it produces a type of pottery that is slightly absorbent. It is said that if you have prepared tea in an Yixing teapot many times, you can reach a point where by adding boiled water alone you can make tea because the teapot itself holds enough of the tea flavour. One of the special attributes of Yixing teapots is the ability to retain heat. Small pores produced in the clay during firing retain both heat and flavour, and the low shrinkage rate of Yixing clay allows the potter to make a close fitting lid that stops oxidation and so strengthens the tea flavour. No detergents just rinse your Yixing tea pot with water only. Learn More
