Stash Tea's Baleen Whale Yixing Teapot

A Functional Work of Art

Stash Tea Baleen Whale Yixing Teapot

Upgrade your standard teapot and enjoy the whimsical functionality of Stash Tea’s Baleen Whale Yixing Teapot. Made of red and purple clay, the delicate piece mimics the ancient teapots of the Yixing region of China. The uniquely porous clay is left uncoated on the inside, providing insulation through tiny air pockets. The spaces also absorb the aroma and taste of tea, so we recommend using this artsy pot with your favorite fine blend. Each whale yields about two sizeable cups, or ten ounces. The teapot can also be purchased in the lizard or dragon design, each depicting a beautiful representation of Yixing artistry that is great for enjoyment and décor.

Price: $28
