The Essence of Purple Clay
Purple Clay teapots are produced in Yixing, China. The raw materials known as purple clay. In general, it includes purple clay, red clay and original green clay.
The various types of clay within the purple clay group contain different quantities of oxidized iron. A proper mixture of all these clay may produce different colours after being fired at various temperatures. Purple clay has the reputation of being a high quality clay because of its fine texture and porous nature, as well as being easily moulded into teapots.
Teapots made from purple clay are elegant, classic yet functionally practical and comfortable to hold as tea is poured out. They possess an even lustre on the surface and exude the spirit of the expansive brew within.
RETAINING ORIGINAL FLAVOUR AND AROMA OF TEA
Owing to the unique properties of purple clay, the flavour and aroma of tea are not lost during preparation.

With regular use, the inner walls of the teapot continue to absorb the essence of tea which enriches the tea flavour in subsequent brews.

This is especially true during very warm weather. Tea kept in purple clay teapots seldom changes nor turns sour or rancid.

If a pot is not used for a long time it might develop a slightly rancid odour. However, after a few rinses with hot water the teapot will be ready for use again.
