Preparation Before Use

Yixing Teapots should be prepared before using the first time. This is called "opening the pot". It removes the dust/sand from firing the teapot.

We would recommend rinsing the teapot under warm water two or three times, then wipe gently inside and outside of the pot with a new non-scratch sponge scourer to remove sediment trapped in the unglazed clay. 

Then, filling the teapot with boiling water, wait for 10 minutes, empty the pot and let it cool down naturally; repeat for two or three times, your new Yixing teapot is ready to use.

Daily cleaning and seasoning

Empty the leaves after each use, rinse with boiling water, drain, wipe water away with clean soft cloth, and then lid off, place the body upside, let it air dry for one or two days. 

Do not ever use any detergent or soap than water to clean the pot. 

Do not let the potcome into contact with other strong smell such as cooking fume, cigarette smoke, perfume.
