Brew your favorite tea in this beautifully hand crafted teapot made from clay found in the Yi Xing Chinese province. This unique teapot is sculpted to resemble a traditional fish, the Chinese symbol for good fortune. The lid of the teapot fits right in to continue the fin of the fish for a modern continuous look. The smaller size of the teapot is traditional of the Chinese culture where it is common to drink many small portions of tea to avoid over-steeping. Tea can be brewed quickly and assures it will be served without bitterness. Yi Xing ware has the unique ability to absorb the tea flavor with continued usage. It is even said that after many years of use, you can brew tea just by adding boiling water to the teapot. The fired clay contains tiny air pockets which provide insulation and enhanced taste and aroma of fine tea. Due to the handmade nature of this tea pot, the textures, patterns, and colors will vary from piece to piece.
