Steeping Instructions
  • General Care:
    • All Yixing teapots must be seasoned in advance (see below for details).
    • Please remember to never use soap to wash these pots as they are porous and will absorb flavors. 
    • Always only use water to rinse after each use, and turn upside down to air dry.
    • Let it dry completely before putting it away for storage.
    • Do not let it sit in standing water after it has been seasoned.  

    Before Brewing Your First Pot:
    1. Place your brand new teapot into a bowl of hot water, with lid removed, completely submerged so that water fills the interior as well. 
    2. Soak submerged for an hour or so, and change out the hot water and soak again.  After the second time, remove teapot and using a cloth, wipe the inside for any residual loose clay. 
    3. Steep a pot of tea, preferably with the tea you are intending for use with the teapot. 
    4. Discard tea and leaves, and turn your teapot upside down to dry. 
    5. The pot is ready to use.
