Usage

Before you first use your Yixing pot we advise you to follow an easy and effective procedure, that will ensure the best quality brewing for the years to come:

1- steep few grams of the tea you intend to use with your Yixing teapot in a normal kitchen pot full of water;
2- boil the water for about half of an hour, brewing a very strong tea;
3- remove the tea leaves, leaving a clear brew;
4- wrap your Yixing in a rug or cloth, taking care to wrap its lid in a different piece of cloth. We will boil it in the same pot we have prepared, so we need to ensure the best protection for our Yixing teapot;
5- submerge the Yixing teapot in the strong tea for another half hour;
6- let it cool down naturally, then rinse with fresh water.

Little treasure and a cutie

Really so happy with this small Yixing Xishi! It’s perfect for solo brewing. I dedicated this Yixing teapot to heicha. Works wonderful, with 👌 pour

Hi, thank you very much for your kind words: we love our clay and we are grateful to our artisan, to whom goes all the merit! We wish you countless fragrant brews ✨

My cutest daily pot

I use this teapot for shu puerh and it’s perfect. The perfect size for a solo session. It’s SO cute as well. I like admiring it and holding it in my hands. The only issue I can find for this is the knob on the top of the lid is on the small side and can be hard to pick up when hot. I was searching for a 70-80ml Yixing xishi teapot and I was so happy to have found this.
