Traditional Chinese Yixing teapots are ideal for green teas.
Yixing (pronounced ee-shing) teapots first appeared during the Sung Dynasty (960-1279) in the Jiangsu province of China. The Jiangsu province is the world's only source for the unique clay used to make Yixing teapots, called purple or red clay.
Purple clay absorbs the flavor, smell, and color of the tea that is brewed in it. For this reason, a single flavor of tea should be dedicated its own Yixing teapot.
