Purple clay, known as Zi Sha, is a special type of clay with excellent transmission and preservation of heat. Teapots made from this material are designed to retain the aroma and flavors of tea brewed with them; therefore, it is best to brew only one particular type of tea in a Zi Sha pot, so that that pot absorbs the essence of the tea and brings it out in further sessions. These teapots became popular throughout China in the North Song Dynasty, and were traded to many other countries from there.


This pot is elegantly crafted in a Xi Shi style, which takes its name from one of the four great beauties of ancient China. With its elegant shape and fluid lines, the overall beauty of the pot is established and maintained; the body of the pot looks almost like the full, round face of a beautiful girl.

A common Chinese saying proclaims that “in the eyes of a lover, Xi Shi appears”: this phrase can be taken to mean that, no matter a person’s actual appearance or how they may look to others, to someone who loves them they will be as beautiful as Xi Shi. From this, it is said that every lover of tea and Zisha teapots has a Xi Shi in their heart.
