Yixing (ee-ching) pottery, forged from the deep mines beneath the earth of Jiangsu, is an ancient Chinese stoneware meticulously crafted from various types of clay fortified with stones and minerals. Since the time of the Ming Dynasty, Yixing pots have been considered the finest choice for tea preparation and enjoyment. The elegant and simple forms are often inspired by themes of nature, geometry, or the whims of the crafts person. The cups will develop a delicate, prized patina over time. With care, it will last a lifetime, continuing to improve with age.
