About Yixing Clay: The locale of yixing clay is the Yixing area ofJiangsu (east), China. The red clay is fired, but lacks any glazing process to retain the natural pores of the clay. This is important because these pores retain the flavor of the tea with each steeping.

CERAMIC TPOT-Banko Tsubo -8oz
The charcoal Ceramic 8 oz. Banko Tsubo Teapot is a kyusu-style Japanese teapot, meaning its principle is to steep Japanese green teas, as they require cooler water temperatures (between 140º to 180º). The Ceramic 8 oz. Banko Tsubo Teapot features a slight shimmer, making this teapot as radiant as Japanese green tea. See paragraph below for information on the traditional Japanese steeping process. Spec’s: Material: Ceramic Size: 3.2”H, 3.2”Diameter Volume: 8 oz. Color: Charcoal About the traditional Japanese steeping process: Water is boiled in a tetsubin, then transferred to a yuzamashi, which decreases the temperature of the water by 15º to 20º (185º-190º). The water is then poured into a kyusu, dropping the temperature by another 15º to 20º (165º-175º), at which point the water is primed to steep quality Japanese green teas.
