Yixing teapots are here! These 200ml teapots, while not fully handmade, are genuine Yxing teapots made from Zisha clay, affordably priced, and suitable for brewing tea western style, or gongfu sessions involving several people.

As Yixing teapots are unglazed, their inner and outer surfaces are porous, allowing trace amounts of brewed tea to absorb into the teapots with continued use. For this reason, it is recommended to dedicate each teapot for use with a specific type of tea, as the pots themselves will enhance the flavor of tea poured from them over time.

Also, they should be cleaned only with hot water and a cloth, as soap will also impart a flavor into the porous surfaces of the teapot. Over time, a patina will develop on the surfaces of the pot, which is normal and to be expected.

Personally, I am using my 200ml teapot for black teas, as I enjoy drinking them in mugs or an insulated 200ml glass. For puerh and oolongs, I use smaller teapots and brew them gongfu style.
