Yixing Zisha teaset, made of Purple Clay, was decided in the Sony Dynasty to be the ideal material to brew tea. The clay is rich in iron, which helps sustain the heater water temperature, allowing for a very rich and complex tea infusion. Generally, Yixing tea pots are used for Oolong Tea, Pu'er Tea and Black Tea. In some cases Green Tea as well, but be careful not to over brew it, as these purple clay pots maintain a very high temperature of water for a much longer period of time compared to porcelain or ceramic ware.
