Yixing has a long history as the “Pottery Capital” of China. It was there during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 CE) that the world's first teapots were created... First, when the tea is brewed in teapots made from the special “Zisha” (purple sand) clay, a tiny amount of tea is absorbed in the interior. That season the pot. The first Yixing teapots originated west of Taihu, the great lake in the Jiangsu province around 100 miles from Shanghai. They became a favorite of the Chinese intellectual class for their naturalism in both material and form. The distinctive reddish stoneware teapots came to be considered the best for brewing tea.
