These Yixing teapots are prized by collectors all over the world. The Zi Sha clay, which these teapots are made of, is found in the hilly southern area of the Yixing region. What makes an Yixing teapot unique is that the inside is never glazed. Each time the teapot is used it absorbs some of the oil from the tea. Only one type of tea should be used in each teapot. Some say that after many uses, you can brew tea in an Yixing teapot without adding any tea leaves. These beautiful teapots are small by western standards. The Yixing teapots are generally designed for a single user and the Chinese originally drank the tea directly from the spout. Sometimes you'll find a larger pot or a tea set on our site. Each pot is handmade with the artists chop (signature) on the bottom. Some of our very special pots are only made by one artist. These pots are very collectible and, as an artists reputation expands, can become quite valuable.

Who are we? Necessiteas is a small company that believes in the beauty of these teapots as well as the enjoyment and health benefits of tea. We're also nice people. Unless specifically stated, we do not drop ship. This means we inspect each teapot we sell. Please note that each of these teapots is made by hand. You may find small differences in each pot. This is one of the appealing aspects of handmade teapots. If an item is one of the few we drop ship from China please be assured that it comes from a trusted partner.

Sale items, scratch and dent items, or items purchased with a special discount code are not returnable. We cannot refund shipping charges.
