Yixing Purple Clay Empaistic Dragon Teapot

Availability: In stock

Yixing Purple Clay Empaistic Dragon Teapot contains thousands of air holes, or micro-pores, allowing a more efficient retention of heat and the ability to absorb a tea's aroma. After a succession of infusions, this teapot will develop a 'sheen'. This is the beautiful result of the tea slowly permeating to the outer surface giving a gentle glow. It takes time so patience is essential. The true way of developing this patina is by simply brewing your favorite tea in this teapot and knowing you've begun the process that will eventually result in a beautifully seasoned Yixing teapot.


Made of: Purple-Clay.

Dimension: Length 17 cm (6.8"), Height 9.5 cm (3.7").

Beautiful design
Beautiful design, Definitely a bit smaller than I was looking for, Over all seems good! Really love the design. But the Quality is not particularly good. The only part that would have been better would be if it were a more durable material. Because I think the price is really cheap.

This teapot is very cute, and it <i>is</i> absolutely functional; it was just a lot smaller than I'd anticipated. It fits in your hand and will make enough tea for +/- an espresso cup.
