The Zisha Journey --Natural Zisha clay, the legendary secret behind VitaClay® Chef, was formed over thousands of years by cleansing rainfalls that scrubbed the mountains in southern China, releasing minerals into lakes and forming huge beds of Zisha, known as the “pride of China.” Zisha is the natural organic material that was crafted into ‘LIVING COOKWARE” and highly prized by Emperors to promote health, wellbeing and longevity.
The fine texture and slightly porous nature of purple clay, combined with its low thermal conductivity make it ideal for making food and brewing tea. Purple clay has special characteristics, chemistry, composition, and texture. It has a 4% water absorption rate, and is normally considered to be the best raw material for making chemical free teapots and crockery in the world.
With proper refinement plus a very high temperature, this clay produces a type of pottery that is slightly absorbent.
