Yixing teaware is so famous that lots of people try to get rich with selling fake ones. But if you have hold one true Yixing pot, then you know the difference between real and fake. Since clay is porous material, these teapots season more readily, and in China, some connoisseurs will pay a small fortune to acquire seasoned pots once owned by tea masters. There is a legend that tells about an Emperor who walks by from a old farm house. Suddenly a heavenly tea aroma fills up his nostrils and without any longer thought he rushes into this house. The kind farmer offers him some tea, he drinks a cup, two, then he stops and asks: “ where did you, poor farmer, get this expensive tea?”. Then farmer answers: “ I don´t really have tea, I only have this pot which was used by my great grandfather, grandfather and my father. I only pour hot water in here and enjoy what it gives me.”

 It is just remarkable what these pots can soak in. If you treat it with respect then it pay you back big time.
