Quick Overview:

Enjoy the preservation features of real Yixing clay. This zisha tea caddy is semi-handmade, and displays painted peony plants & flowers and a beautiful pheasant.


Yixing (zisha) clay is often used to create teapots due to their excellent heat preservation feature. What is less known is that this clay type has excellent dry leaf preservation features and therefore also used to create Yixing tea caddies.

Awakening pu erh tea

Pu erh tea lovers also love to use an Yixing tea caddy for awakening long-term stored tea. You simply need to break the compressed tea cake into smaller pieces using a tea knife and then store it for 2-6 weeks. Because zisha clay is porous it will allow for some amount of air circulation inside the caddy allowing the leaves to air freely and release the unpleasant aroma resulting from pile-fermenting.

Other suitable teas

Given it’s porous nature, this caddy is also suitable for black tea and oolong tea. Green and white teas have delicate aromas that can be negatively affected by Yixing and should be stored in more airtight & smell free storage jars.

In the video below we loosen a compressed pu erh tea and let it air inside our Yixing tea caddy. Somewhere in the middle of the video you can see the caddy and get a better idea of the size.
