Vintage Yixing | Poet

Regular price $480

Nothing makes sense in his presence, but nothing ever needed to with his company. Poet is a Yixing teapot with an artful, oval design that invites contemplation and conversation. He was originally part of the antique Yixing wares that belonged to our tea maker’s generational teapot collections.

Its red clay body, less glossy and with a tactile roughness, encourages a hands-on connection with your tea ritual. It is a testament to the craft of Yixing pottery, where function and form meet to create a more textured tea experience. As with the finest poetry, this teapot's charm lies in its ability to enhance the flavors of your tea, delicately layering each new brew with the essence of the previous. It stands ready to become a part of your tea's story, enriching every cup with history and depth.


  • Dimensions: L 4" x W 2.75" x H 2.75"
  • Volume: 100 ml / 3.5 oz
  • Made in Yixing, China


Common Questions

What type of tea is best to brew in a clay teapot?

Clay teapots are great for holding temperature and therefore are best suited for brewing roasted teas or vintage teas to better bring out the depth of flavor (versus glass or porcelain teapots). The clay is porous and the aromatic oils of the teas it brews. As such, we don’t recommend brewing scented or blended teas to avoid flavor transfer.

How do I clean my clay teapot?

Never use soap! Remove the brewed tea leaves (chopsticks help) and rinse with hot water until all the small tea leaves are rinsed out. Don’t forget to rinse the lid. Use your hand for tea stains, we don't think there is a real need for a scrub. Once it's cleaned, open the lid to air dry. Do not replace the lid until the teapot is completely dry.
