Wake Up Call
Made with Yixing clay--an ancient material native to China--this modernist coffee set is steeped in history and culture. This lovely violet clay was discovered around Taihu in Jiangsu during the Northern Song Dynasty, around 1,000–1,200 A.D. When fired, it assumes a fine and sandy texture that maintains the temperature of hot drinks longer than ordinary ceramics. Teapots made out of Yixing, or Zisha, clay are highly prized because their unglazed surface absorbs traces of the beverage, creating a more complex flavor. The components of this handsome set take advantage of the clay's special properties. After extended use, the pot will take on the fragrance of your preferred coffee or tea blend, making each set uniquely yours. Made in China.
