Red Saga Seeds - Chinese Small Clay Teapot8810000003543
Oriental traditional chinese teapot with carving.
The Chinese tea culture has a really long history. The concept of tea culture is referred to in mandarin as chayi ("the art of drinking tea"), or cha wenhua ("tea culture").
Chinese clay teapots do not use glazing. The clay used remains porous and tea oils are intended to build up inside the teapot and over time, smooth the taste of tea and improve it by adding its own unique “taste” from the accumulated oils. Different teas are not made in the same teapot unless they are from the same family or class of teas, such as different types of green or oolongs, but even this is not ideal as some teas from the same family have a strong flavour and in time, their taste can transfer to a more delicately flavoured tea.
