A handmade work of Chinese art, with a tradition goin' back thousands of years. This pot be made from rare "zi sha" clay ("purple sand"), which be found only in thar city of Yixing, in Jiangsu province.

Ideal teas fer this be oolongs 'n pu'erhs, although some black teas will be quite lovely, as well. ye unglazed tea pot will become "seasoned", absorbin' te' rich tea oils over repeated use.
