Jianshui Zi Tao Pottery

These teapots are handmade in Jianshui, Yunnan, China. We visited Wan Yao village where these teapots are made. We wrote about the experience in our travel blog. Jian Shui teapots are made from 5 uniquely colored clays sourced in the mountains outside Jianshui. They are single fired and never glazed. This is a true clay and lacks any sand which allows them to be hand polished to give a shiny appearance. The natural minerals in the clay will enhance the flavor of your tea. Jianshui teapots are made from clay sourced in the same region where puerh tea trees grow. They work well for brewing puerh, but can be used for all teas.
