Product Description

A handmade work of Chinese art, with a tradition going back thousands of years. This pot is made from rare "zi sha" clay ("purple sand"), which is found only in the city of Yixing, in Jiangsu province. These often elaborate and whimsical pots are traditionally used for gongfu steeping, where tea is served in small cups over the course of many very short infusions. Ideal teas for this are oolongs and pu'erhs, although some black teas will be quite lovely, as well. The unglazed tea pot will become "seasoned", absorbing the rich tea oils over repeated use. So no matter which tea you choose, it's recommended to dedicate a Yixing pot to a particular type of tea for best flavor. Perfect for foodservice, restaurant and other professional industrial uses. Bulk pricing available through Adagio Wholesale.

Penn State Tea Institute To Host 'Yixing Teapot' Exhibition - Onward State

Taiwanese tea master Teaparker aka Chi Zongxian, who suggested the concept of “the teapot serves the tea,” was recently invited to Penn State for a four-day “yixing teapot” exhibition. An unprecedented occurrence, this is the first time an American university will host an event based solely on yixing clay. Teaparker, who once served as the judge of the Taiwan Yingge Ceramics Museum Tea Ware Competition, stated that yixing is very valued and loved among the Taiwanese tea lovers, especially after auction prices broke record highs the last few years. However, the most attractive thing about a yixing teapot is the clay itself. Serving as a visionary for scientifically investigating yixing teapots in China and Taiwan, the Tea Institute at Penn State discusses the interaction between yixing clay and tea properties through scientific analyses, operations, and... Beginning on April 23, lectures and seminars will cover topics such as yixing clay, the clays and the tea, the history of yixing clay, shapes of yixing teapots, yixing clay research, the yixing clay teapot brewing method, and yixing teapots in... The focus will rest on analyzing these topics based on scientific approaches, while enriching the conversations of culture and history. Although the seminar will be led by Teaparker himself, French student Stephane Erler and Palina Chan from the Cha Ren Ya Xin Culture & Arts Association will take part in the demonstrations. Alongside Ryan Ahn, the director of the Tea Institute at Penn State, Teaparker will participate in the discussions and practice for four days, discovering rationales for “the only teapot in this world is called yixing.

  • The Stonewares of Yixing

    Hong Kong University Press. 1986. ISBN: 9622091121,9789622091122. 287 pages.

    Despite its beauty, individuality and variety of design, the red or brown unglazed stoneware produced at Yixing in Jiangsu Province has received less attention than other branches of Chinese ceramic art. The Yixing potters have always specialized in the making of teapots, whose use became widespread during the Ming period as a result of the innovation of making tea from rolled leaves, rather than using it in the fine-ground, powdered from in which it had previously been supplied.
