This unique dark brown plum blossom yixing mug is made in Yixing, China with fine yixing clay, also known as zishaŚpurple sand. This method of producing yixing clay ware is an age-old method and has been in practice in China since the fifteenth century. Yixing tea wares are highly prized in China and all over the world because of their unique brewing property. Because of their smooth absorbent unfinished surface, yixing tea ware absorbs traces of tea over time to produce a richer, more complex flavor in tea. For this reason, tea connoisseurs prefer using yixing mugs.
