Yixing Clay Teaware

Revered in the tea world for its ability to improve the taste of tea, Yixing is a form of unglazed clay teaware with a history stretching back centuries in China. Because it is unglazed, natural minerals and pores in the clay interact with the tea as it brews, softening its mouthfeel and extending its finish.
