Genuine Yixing Zisha Purple Clay Teapot Classic Black Xi Shi (西施)
Capacity: 280ml / 9.5 oz
Xi Shi is a beloved timeless style of Yixing purple clay teapot. Xi Shi is one of the four most famous ancient beautiful ladies of Chinese legend. This teapot is handcrafted from Yixing Hei Ni clay, which is a rare compound in Yixing clay. This teapot is ideal for brewing black, oolong, or any type of tea.
Zisha is known to have the ability to absorb tea liquor and flavor. Over a period of time the surface of the tea pot can reflect the color and aroma of the tea that it brews and become glazed.
A new Zisha teapot should be seasoned before use: soak the Zisha teapot in a clean pot, with the water fully covering the teapot, and boil the water for a half hour to one hour. After boiling has completed, carefully remove the teapot, and rinse.
Handle with care. Hand wash only without soap and detergent. Only brew one type of tea per teapot.
