Yixing Introduction


The city is located 60 kilometres from Wuxi o­n the western bank of Taihu Lake. It is criss-crossed by small canals with ponds and lakes dotted around them. Underground lies a fascinating world of more than 50 caves.
The most famous three are the Zhanggong Cave, Linggu Cave and Shanjuan Cave. If you go to Zhuling Village twenty-five kilometers southwest of Yixing, don‘t fail to visit the Karst cave in Luoyang Hill; it is called the "first historical site south of the Yangtze River." This five thousand-square-meter cave has four layers, the lowest being an underground water way. The lower and water layers are the most fascinating of the four. The narrow lower cave, which contains a waterfall, is linked with the 120-meter-long water cave, where tourists can row along the winding underground stream. Some of the stalactites in the cave are seven meters long.

The capital of China is Beijing. But there are two more Chinese capitals worth knowing about. o­ne is Jingdezhen in Jiangxi, the "capital of porcelain"; the other is Yixing in Jiangsu, the "capital of pottery". In American Yixing expert Richard Notkin's words, Yixing is the "sculptural center of the world". Local pottery production has a history of more than 3,000 years, longer than local recorded history. During the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644AD), the industry saw its heyday. But there's been something of a revival recently and alongside Chinese support for the national pottery center, large amounts of products are now exported overseas.It enjoys high reputation both in and overseas for its famous title of  the ancient pottery capital, the world of caves, oasis of tea and the sea of bamboo forest.rum,trade forum,business opportunity,Business China,Business India,Brazil business.

Clay teapots from the town of Yixing are an indispensable accessory for tea drinkers throughout China. Usually small, squat, and brown, fine craftsmanship and special materials make them an ideal vessel for making tea. The fired clay is uniquely able to bring out the flavors of tea leaves during brewing. Since the clay is absorbent, unlike porcelain or metal, some of the flavor is absorbed into the pot during each brewing. This gives the tea a richer and more mellow flavor - after using a pot many times, the pot itself can flavor boiling water without adding any fresh tea leaves!
