Traditional yixing (YEE-shing) clay from Jiangsu, China, with a nature-inspired floral pattern and a plum blossom lid top. This porous red clay enhances the Sip by Sip experience with more depth and character of flavor because of its unique ability to absorb the tea with repeated infusions.

Once I got this mug and also an infuser to go with it, I wanted to drink tea in it all the time. I've always wanted an Yixing tea set and thought that a mug would be a good starter.
What I do think needs to be included is specific care instructions for these porous clay mugs. I had to Google care instructions, and realized that there were things that I should've done before using. There is a seasoning process that begins with boiling the mug in water, than with tea. Care includes hand washing but without soap or else subsequent tea infusions will taste of soap. Also it is recommended to use only one variety of tea since the absorption of tea flavors will affect how your tea tastes. This is information that wasn't included in this otherwise beautiful mug.
