They are made to brew one type of tea. The small design is purposely made for one kind of tea. That’s why you might see people have many of these “tiny teapots.” Each pot they have is for a different flavor of tea.
Travel size.The size of Yixings are convenient. Some teapots are small enough to fit in pockets and purses. This was great for older generations, and some people in this era still use them for this reason.
Stronger taste. Because these teapots only hold around a cup of water, you don’t need too much tea to have a strong taste.
Reusing tea leaves.The small water quantity won’t take the full flavor out of the tea. This allows you to reuse your tea leaves by just adding more boiled water to your pot.
Cools down quicker.A smaller quantity of hot water cools down in a shorter amount of time. You won’t have to wait so long to drink your tea.
Decorative. You can’t deny that a Yixing teapot is pleasing to look at. They add so much tradition and beauty to the atmosphere.
