These teapots, also known as «memory teapots» are made of clay from the Chinese region of Yixing, south of Shangaï. The clay used to produce them is porous; witch gives them the propriety of preserving the taste of the infusion and enhancing the following. Reserve each memory teapot for a single type of tea (black teas, Oolong teas, smoked teas, etc.).
Before using them, Yixing teapots have to be prepared for their first use: place 1 or 2 teaspoons of the chosen tea in the teapot, fill with boiling water, let it infuse for 12 hours, then rinse.To preserve the layer of flavour, it is very important to never use soap. Simply rinse with boiling water and let dry.
