The rare Yixing clay, found only in Lake Taihu in the Jiangsu Province of China, is unglazed and therefore slightly porous. In traditional tea service, a family would use one pot for each different type of tea and over generations of use, the flavor the tea grows more complex and fine. These simple pots have been used since the Song dynasty as the perfect teapot for enjoying tea with friends and family. Whimsical shapes and narrative decoration is a traditional touch on these unique pots.
