1. Make sure to use cool, clean water when washing the teapot.
2. To avoid any build-up of residue, it is recommended to use a soft brush or a cloth to gently scrub away dirt or stains.
3. After cleaning and rinsing, dry the teapot completely before storing away in a moisture-free location.
4. If there is any discoloration or smell, you can leave the teapot (with the lid off) in an area with direct sunlight for several hours until it disappears.
5. Use boiling water from time to time to prevent the buildup of scale inside the pot as well as keep it clean and hygienic at all times.
The taste of tea brewed in a purple clay teapot is very good and it is the most popular choice for tea lovers. However, tea lovers often don’t understand how to take care of the teapot.
After using the purple sand pot, it must be kept dry inside the pot, do not accumulate moisture.
Place the item in a well ventilated area, away from heat or humidity and do not wrap or seal the item until after use.
Do not place it near areas with a lot of smoke or dust.
After using, it is best to put the kettle lid on its side; do not tightly close the lid often.
Water should not be kept in the kettle all the time; it should only be filled with water when making tea.
It is best to have several good purple clay teapots. When drinking a certain kind of tea, only one pot should be used and no other teas should be used in the same teapot. Identification should be added to avoid confusion.
Do not immerse purple clay pots in detergent or any chemical agent, otherwise it will wash away the tea taste and make its appearance lose luster.
After using it, use a cloth to absorb the water outside the kettle, then pour out two thirds of the tea leaves in the kettle, leaving about one third, rush into boiling water for two or three times, keep the water that has been flushed, and then clean it up.
When maintaining a purple sand teapot, it is important to keep it clean, especially avoiding contact with oil stains, and ensuring the structure of the pot is completely open. When brewing tea, pour boiling water onto the outside wall of the pot first, then add water to the inside, which is commonly referred to as “moisten the pot”. A cotton cloth should be used to wipe down the body of the pot; don’t let tea stay on its surface or it will accumulate over time, affecting the appearance of the purple sand teapot. The teapot should also have a rest period after being in use for a while; usually three to five days where it is left in an open area to thoroughly dry out (including airholes in its structure).
