She is the source of knowledge; we feel wiser when we get closer. Meet the Professor, a Yixing teapot with a shape that's as distinguished as its name. She was originally part of the antique Yixing wares that belonged to our tea maker’s generational teapot collections.

Crafted from red clay, its unique form brings a touch of elegance to the ritual of tea brewing. Like its counterparts, it specializes in enhancing your tea experience. Its porous, unglazed interior is designed to absorb the subtle notes of your favorite teas, infusing each new pot with the complexity of the ones that came before. Ideal for the discerning tea lover, it promises to educate your palate, providing a deeper, more refined taste with every steep.


  • Dimensions: L 4.5" x W 3" x H 3"
  • Volume: 136 ml / 4.8 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.
