Yixing teapots are made of a type of clay found only in the Jiangsu province of China. This clay, when fired, becomes a porous ceramic. The pores absorb tea oils and flavors, so that with each use, the teapot also becomes more seasoned and develops its own unique flavor profile.
Bian yuan teapots have a flat bottom and round body. This shape is said to allow the tea leaves to unfurl fully and release their flavor more effectively than other shapes.
This particular teapot is handmade from Duanni clay. Duanni clay is prized for its high quality and beautiful natural color. It is one of the most sought-after types of clay for Yixing teapots.
If you are looking for a high-quality, handmade Yixing teapot, then this Bian Yuan pot from Duanni clay is an excellent choice. It is sure to give you many years of enjoyment, and will become more flavorful with each use.
