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.

Teapot made in China, exclusively for Adagio, using the prized Qing Shui Ni clay. 6oz (0.2L). 3" Diameter.

Fresh From Origin

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.
