One of the most popular topics we receive questions about is pairing teas with Yixing teapots. This is understandable as the purpose of using an Yixing Teapot is to complement the flavour of tea.
While we do have some suggestions for tea pairing, they come with the following caveat: These are rough guidelines and reflect our personal tastes and opinions.
The spectrum of Yixing teapots consists of zhuni, hongni, zini, duanni/luni (or "red, brown, yellow"). Zhuni will have the least affect on flavour and is good for concentrating aroma. Hongni (including jiangponi) will mute certain flavours more, but not as much as zini. Zini will mute more flavour, but not as much as duanni and lüni.
We always recommend trying a new teapot with as many different kinds of tea as possible. You may be surprised by what goes well with a certain kind of clay.
