Enjoy a hand-made work of art whose lineage has woven through Chinese history for more than 2000 years. The rare Zi Sha clay, meaning purple sand, solely used for the creation of these teapots is only found in the city of Yixing in the Jiangsu province of China. Traditionally used for gong fu style steeping of fine oolongs, they can also be used for other premium teas. This teapot will absorb the essence of the tea, so its recommended to dedicate a Yixing to a particular type of tea. Historically, Zisha teapots were only for the privileged. We are pleased to present them for all to enjoy. Made in China. 6oz (0.2L).
The beautiful city of Harbin, China - considered the Eastern St. Petersburg - inspired the name for this charming, onion-shaped pot. Harbin, one of the largest cities in China, is famous for the gorgeous architecture of Asian, Russian and European influence. Located in far northeast China, Harbin earns its nickname as the "Ice City" from the bitterly cold Siberian winters. But their citizens take it in stride; the Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival are one of the largest in the world.
