Beautiful Hand Made Teapots from China

by Robert O'Brien May 15, 2015

Good Life Tea stocks a large number of beautiful craftsman made teapots from China each made using ancient techniques improved upon over centuries.  The teapot shown celebrates the cherry blossom - a harbinger of spring.

Yixng clay teapot with cherry blossom designThe delicate petals are appliqued onto the teapot as a final decorative touch.  To complete the cherry blossom theme the handles and spout are fashioned to look like tree branches.

This pot is made of clay from the Yixing area of China.  This clay has been used since the Song Dynasty (960 AD) and represents the best in this tradition.  Yixing teapots are unglazed and as they are used with many steepings, they develop a nice patina on the inside.  This aging process improves the taste of the tea as the minerals from the teapot give something to the tea and visa versa.

The Chinese invented and perfected the way of tea.  Their culture is so intertwined with tea and has lasted thousands of years.  Embark on your tea journey and take this teapot as an essential part of your daily kit.
