Pots made of Yixing clay are known as the best in the world for making tea. Our teapots in this collection are made from good quality Yixing clay by artisans in Yixing, China. We individually choose each pot for classic styling, a snug fitting lid, and a spout that pours well. All our yixing pots come from a teapot collector in Taiwan who has been travelling to Yixing, China multiple times a year over the last 30 years. He is also a long time student of yixing teapot making. Everytime he goes he purchases some pots. We were lucky enough that due to our mutual appreciation of fine teapots to make a good connection with him in order to bring you these genuine yixing teapots.
