|Yixing teapot history
Dating back to the Ming Dynasty, yixing (pronounced yeeshing) teapots come from 20 miles northwest of Shanghai in the Yixing region of China. During production of these especially hand-crafted pots, no glazes or chemicals are added, which allows the clay to absorb a small amount of tea each time it is used for brewing. Therefore, only one kind of tea should be brewed within each pot to fully enjoy the flavor, color and aroma. MrsLinsKitchen.com offers a large selection of yixing teapots so you can own one for every one of your favorite flavors of fine tea. All of our teapots are sculpted into the traditional ornamental designs, such as fish, roosters and monkeys, and they each come with care instructions and the fascinating history of this beautiful teaware. Be sure to browse our entire line of teaware, as well as our extensive collection of Asian tableware.
