About Purple ClayPurple clay is a special mineral that can only be found in Yixing, China. The best feature of purple clay teapots are their air-pores. They can absorb the color, taste and oil from the tea, enhancing the flavor of your tea.
- White powders inside a brand new teapot are powders of mineral, scatterred between the body and the lit when burning, to keep them from sticking. Simply wash them away before the first use will be good.
- Since purple clay has airpores, it will absorb the taste of teas. It is more ideal to use one teapot for one type of tea. You can also start by using one for lighter color (low fermented) teas, and one for darker color (highly fermented) teas.
- Rinse with clear water after each use. Do not use soap to clean.
- After using for a while, the teapot will be darker in color and shinier. You can polish it with a dry towel to make it even more shiny.
