The Yixing pronounced (E-Shing) teapot was the first vessel designed specifically for brewing tea during the Ming dynasty (1368 – 1644). The first Yixing teapots originated west of Taihu, the great lake in the Jiangsu province around 100 miles from Shanghai. ... Pottery has been produced in Yixing since neolithic times.
There are three clays of Yixing collectively known as Zisha (purple sand) a purple-brown clay, a buff-colored clay, and deep orange-red clay. (Chineseantiques.co.uk)
