Terracotta Clay Teapot

Regular price $42

Looking to brew tea at the comfort of your own home? The terracotta clay teapot is fired in high heat with an unglazed interior.

The clay softens the water texture and makes the tea infusion silkier on the palate. This teapot is ideal for a variety of teas and for everyday use. The unglazed interior is porous in texture, which means it takes on the aromatic oils of your teas. Over time the pot will gently season your tea with its patina of flavors, like a heritage cast iron skillet.


  • Dimensions: L 5.5" x W 3.25" x H 3"
  • Volume: 266 ml / 9 oz
  • Proudly made in Taiwan


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.
