Yixing Green Leaf Teapot
Sale Price: $74.99
Original Price: $100.00
Prized equally for their creative, often nature-inspired designs and for their superior brewing characteristics, handmade Yixing teapots like this Yixing Green Leaf Teapot are still fashioned from uniquely hued Yixing clay. Over time the clay will patina, taking on the taste and fragrance of the tea it steeps. Each teapot is stamped on the bottom with the personal “chop” mark of the artisan who crafted it. Made in China. Handsome cloth-covered box. 4.5"h. x 6.5"l. x 2"w.
With a 31-century history of drinking tea and a 500-year-plus legacy of making the world’s finest teapots from Yixing clay—many examples of which are curated by our Freer Gallery of Art—Chinese tea expertise is unsurpassed.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
