The tradition of authentic Yixing teapots dates back centuries, with its roots in the Ming Dynasty. The distinctive red clay is renowned for its ability to absorb the tea's essence and offer unparalleled experience and flavor. The unglazed clay will acquire a patina from the tea's oils resulting in a shiny coating over years of use. Which is why soap should never be applied to its surface. Simply rinse with water and allow to air dry after each use. Additionally, it is customary that only one type of tea (black, oolong or pu erh) is used in each teapot, so as not to corrupt the purity of its flavor.
