I was working on a post for my oldest daughter Emily’s tea blog when I came across the ADORABLE Brown Curious Pig Chinese Yixing Clay Tea Pot 21 ounces, shown above. For someone who collects pigs (not real pigs, my cat wouldn’t approve) in the kitchen, this little beauty made my jaw drop.
This beautiful hand-crafted Yixing Ware tea pot is made from the clay of the Yixing Chinese province. Yixing ware has the unique ability to absorb the tea flavor with continued usage. The fired clay contains tiny air pockets which provide insulation and enhanced taste and aroma of fine tea. The different colors are achieved from pigments added into the clay before firing. Due to the handmade nature of this tea pot, the textures and patterns will vary from piece to piece.

If you (or, say, someone on your Christmas list) love pigs as much as I do, this little beauty would make an incredibly unique and wonderful gift. See Brown Curious Pig Chinese Yixing Clay Tea Pot 21 ounces for a closer look. I can’t get over how adorable this is!
