Yixing, dubbed the Pottery Capital of China, is a county-level city under the jurisdiction of Wuxi. With its fabulous unglazed clay teapots - Yixing Teapots, the city is only the place where you can find such clay soil called Zisha in its hilly areas but no where else.
In 221 B.C. during the Qin Dynasty, the ancient county jurisdiction was established, calling Yangxian at the time. In history, the county was mostly under the prefecture jurisdictions of either Yangzhou or Changzhou. Yixing, as a county name, was first introduced in 976 A.D. during the Song Dynasty.
