Description:
"Yixing teapots date back to the Sung Dynasty. Yixing teapots are highly collectible among tea enthusiasts for their unique beauty and for the special properties in the clay itself. Each yixing teapot or cup should be used for one type or flavor of tea only, as the unglazed vessel will absorb and enhance the flavor with continued use. For this reason yixing products should be hand washed with water only. This wonderful yixing teapot holds approximately 15 oz. Measures approximately 6.5 inches long by 5 inches tall. Each piece is handcrafted in China."

Tea Trivia

A Buddhist Monk introduced tea to Japan in the 6th Century and later in the 16th Century a Portuguese missionary introduced it to Europe. There began the history of Tea as an international drink. Trade between China and the western world grew considerably with the beginning of the Ching Dynasty. As the Emperor of China was taking his first snuff of tobacco brought from Europe, the Queen of England was sipping her first cup of tea. As early as 1615, English traders with the East India Company were aware of the existence of tea. Tea quickly spread throughout Europe and in less than 100 years, England's import of tea rose from 100 pounds a year to over 5 million pounds per year. This demand for tea meant many voyages to bring shiploads of tea from China.
