Why YiXing teapots while my plastic teapot is working fine? A few quick reasons:
  1. YiXing teapots are baked at 2,000F+ high heat resulting in denser and finer clay;
  2. YiXing teapots are micro-porous. They breath, and they absorb the flavor of tea. Old YiXing teapots can thus enhance flavor of tea brewed;
  3. YiXing teapots don't lose heat quickly resulting in higher temperature, which gets more flavor out of tea;
  4. YiXing teapots look better than my plastic teapot;
  5. come on, aren't there enough reasons for you to at least take a look at the following YiXing teapots?
  • Each YiXing teapot comes with a free custom made brocade box.
  • You can even pick a pattern for your brocade box if you buy from these pages.
  • All YiXing teapots are handmade, there might be slight differences between the PICs and the actual teapot shipped.
