Red Clay is the most common material for teapots, because it is good for brewing light and medium tea such as green tea, jasmine tea, flavored tea, or oolong tea. This is because red clay heats the tea to a certain temperature to obtain optimal taste. This is a beautiful Tea serving pot. The Chinese on the pot is an old poem from Ming Dynasty.

|Choosing a Teapot. Teapots come in different sizes and are made from different materials. The amount of tea you’re making and the quality of the tea dictate its size. The type of tea you’re making dictate the material the teapot is made from.
Teapot Material. Teapots are made from red clay, black clay, or porcelain. Different types of tea are made better in one of these types of teapots. Porcelain teapots are good for making light colored tea such as green tea, jasmine tea, or flavored tea. Red clay teapots are good for making light to medium colored tea such as green tea, jasmine tea, flavored tea, or oolong tea. Black clay teapots are good for making darker colored tea such as black tea (British tea), pu-erh tea, or dark oolong tea.
Teapot Size. Teapots come in a multitude of sizes from very small to large. The smallest size is used when only 1 or 2 people are drinking tea, or when the tea is very expensive. This is because by using a smaller teapot, you will only be using a little tea. A teapot should be able to make enough tea in each batch for each person who is drinking tea. Remember that Chinese teacups are very small, so a serving is usually small. As soon as the tea is served, more water can be added to make the next batch.
