How we pick our products
A teapot is a vessel used for steeping tea leaves or herbs in boiling water. The most common form of teapots are made from ceramic, although historically they were often constructed from metal (particularly brass) and wood. Teapots usually have an opening with a lid at the top where the dry tea and hot water are added, a spout through which the brewed tea is poured out, and a handle by which the pot can be held while pouring.

Japanese Teapot: Frequently asked questions
What types of Japanese Teapot are there and what determines a good product?
The most important thing is the quality of clay. It should be a good, pure white color with no impurities or spots. Also, it must have a nice weight and feel to it when you hold it in your hand. If you can find one that has been fired at least twice (a double-fired teapot), then this will make for better heat retention and easier cleaning as well.
Who should use a Japanese Teapot?
Based on what criteria should you buy a Japanese Teapot?
The first thing to look out for is the material. There are mainly three types of materials used in Japanese teapots, which are Yixing clay (Purple Clay), Iron and Porcelain. Each type has its own unique characteristics that affect how it brews tea as well as what kind of tea you can use with them. For example, porcelain or iron pots cannot be used with oolong teas because they will give off a metallic taste while yixing clay gives off an earthy tone when brewing green teas due to their porous nature; hence why we recommend using these two kinds exclusively for Chinese Green Teas like Dragon Well Tea or Long Jing Tea.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Japanese Teapot?
Japanese Teapots are made from high quality clay and fired at a very high temperature. This makes them extremely durable, heat resistant and able to brew tea for many years without losing their original shape or performance. They also have an elegant design that is pleasing to the eye as well as being functional in use.
The disadvantages of a Japanese teapot are that they can be expensive, and some people may not like the fact that it is made from clay.
