Specialty Teaware - Zisha

In the words of a great teamaster, "for fine tea, there is Zisha Clay and no second." Zisha or Purple Clay has been the preferred choice for brewing gong fu cha for over five hundred years. It contains the perfect combination of clay and minerals to produce round, soft, silky water that rises to the roof of the mouth and disappears like vapor. Authentic Zisha teaware is hard to come by these days. We work with a small studio in Yixing, China that has produced unsurpassed, hand-crafted Zisha teaware for generations. Please let us know if there is something in particular you are looking for as some of the rare items require preorder.
