YiXing purple clay is an unique natural clay in China. When fired, the purple clay assumes a fine and sandy texture that retains the temperature of the tea held inside longer than ordinary ceramics. Teapots made out of Zisha clay are highly prized because their unglazed surface absorbs traces of the beverage, creating a more complex flavor.
