  determined
   during the
Song Dynasty
   that Zisha
 clay was the
most ideal for
 brewing tea.

Quartz and other minerals leave remains after
the clay is fired between 1100-1180°C. This

Its miniscule holes allow the teapot to adjust to
sudden temperature change and for tea to
breathe. It also absorbs oils thereby enhancing
the flavour.

       Use one
     teapot for
each tea type.
