Authentic Lu-Yu Purple Clay Teapot 紫砂壺

Regular price $60.00 Sale

Teapots are the vessel of choice for brewing tea leaves in water and purple clay’s uniquely porous and absorbent quality make this teapot ideal to brew one specific type of tea for the life of the tea pot- often a specific oolong, black or Pu’er.  Over a series of repeated brews, the pot naturally seasons with trace oil in the tea and acquires the distinctive character of your particular tea of choice. 

This is an authentic teapot from Lu-Yu Tea Art Center in Taiwan.
