Yixing clay teapots, also called Zisha teapot are made from Yixing clay. This traditional style commonly used to brew tea originated in China, dating back to the 15th century, and is made from clay produced near Yixing in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu.
Yixing teapots are intended for puer, black, and oolong teas. A famous characteristic of Yixing teapots is their ability to absorb trace amounts of brewed tea flavors and minerals into the teapot with each brewing. Over time, these accumulate to give each Yixing teapot its own unique interior coating that flavors and colors future brewings. It is for this reason that soap is not recommended for cleaning Yixing teapots, but instead, fresh distilled water and air drying.
