Dragon Purple Clay Teapots
About purple clay pots: Purple clay, or Yixing, teapots are meant for use with black and oolong teas, as well as aged pu erh tea. They can also be used for green or white tea. Yixing teapots are not glazed and so the ceramic absorbs a tiny amount of tea into the pot during brewing. After prolonged use, the pot will develop a coating that retains the flavor and color of the tea. It is for this reason that soap should not be used to clean Yixing teapots. Instead, it should be rinsed with fresh water and allowed to air-dry. It is recommended to only steep one type of tea in a particular pot, so as not to corrupt the flavor that has been absorbed.
