Pottery Teapots Are Known for Fantastic Tea Brewing

Pottery teapots are known for fantastic tea brewing qualities as well as the beauty of the Chinese-crafted teapots themselves. Some designs may follow traditional culture including famous historical works, while the more contemporary styles tend to have natural themes consisting of Chinese symbols, calligraphy, flowers or animals. Yixing, near China, is known as the ‘Pottery Capital’ because of the clay deposits in the area which are used to make these wonderful pottery teapots. This is the same place where during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 CE) the world’s first teapots were created. In the years following the Ming Dynasty, the unique reddish earthenware teapots of Yixing came to be considered the “finest.” Some believe that if you want to bring out the best quality of your tea, only pottery teapots will do. When tea is brewed in teapots made from “Zisha,” which is the clay found only in Yixing, a bit of tea is absorbed into the pot with each use. After a period of time, the pot will develop a ‘finish’ or coating that retains some of the taste, scent, and color of tea, along with an unusually attractive quality. Because of its absorbency, only one type of tea should be used with each teapot. This is why you see so many different teapots in many Chinese households. The teapot’s snugly fitted lid conserves heat, which enhances the brewing process, and tends to keep the tea hotter than normal teapots. Pottery teapots should never be washed with soap, but rinsed out and allowed to air dry. If you have never experienced the taste of freshly-brewed tea from a pottery teapot, you haven’t tasted real tea. This doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the great taste; it only means that you need to order your teapot today. You can order now in fact, from one of the few places on the Internet that sells original pottery teapots. Get yours now!

where can i buy clay for throwing pottery?

I actually don’t plan on throwing it, but that’s besides the point. I want to sculpt with it, just for fun. Can anyone provide websites where I can purchase clay, as I don’t even know where to start because I’m not sure of the specific type of clay I should even be using? (I’m looking for the stuff you typically find in high schools).
I went to hobby lobby today and they did not find anything, and their website doesn’t have anything either, although it’s rather hard to navigate.
Last I asked, which was last month, walmart did not carry it.
Michaels around here also does not have it, hence why I am asking for places online.

What you want is called a ceramic supplier. There are hundreds of them on the net. I’ll give you a link for just a few. You really want to find a supply house closer to where you live, because shipping cost will eat Deeply into your pocket!
Many of your university campus bookstores have Clay, if the university teaches pottery classes.
