A handmade work of Chinese art, with a tradition going back
thousands of years. This pot is made from rare "zi sha" clay ("purple
sand"), which is found only in the city of Yixing, in Jiangsu province.
These often elaborate and whimsical pots are traditionally used for
gongfu steeping, where tea is served in small cups over the course of
many very short infusions. Ideal teas for this are oolongs and pu'erhs,
although some black teas will be quite lovely, as well. The unglazed tea
pot will become "seasoned", absorbing the rich tea oils over repeated
use. So no matter which tea you choose, it's recommended to dedicate a
Yixing pot to a particular type of tea for best flavor.
