Because it contains relatively smaller ratio impurities than other material, and the big fire won't change its shape and glaze, it is widely used. And as it is mellow ruddy, it is also called red purple clay or Hong Qing Shui. The clay looks quaint, and after long time use the same teapot to brew the same teas, the taste of tea will be better. And there are many traditional models; both the makers and teapot lovers like to use this kind of clay.
