So I’ve had it for almost a week and I love it more each time I use it. I posted more photos here of some features I like.

I’m glad I got a flat bottom one so all the tea leaves have room to expand. I find some things (even my test tube steeper) don’t let the bottom tea expand all the way. I don’t have to shake te leaves around.

I love the little holes on the inside of the teapot that filters the leaves.

I also like the arc of the tea as it comes out of the spout.

Yeah, I know, it’s just a teapot :-)

This is the first time I have realized how tiny it is! I’ve never seen a yixing in person, I don’t think there are very many in good old NS, :). Very nice!

Came across this pot while fantasy surfing for all things tea. Glad you like it. Looks like I’ll have pull the trigger. What teas are you using?

I’m glad you like it! I love it!!! I’m using it for my laoshan black teas. They’re my favorites so I figured they earned a nice dedicated pot :-)

@tastybrew,
I am very glad you like this purchase process with me and my teapot(but this is totally yours now:-)), I can’t believe you record this so carefully…
Also glad that there are so many people like this yixing teapot.
So may I propose that, start from today, just at lease one steeper member order in my shop the next month, I will extend this 10% off discount by a month.
My web shop: http://zishayixing.com
Discount code: 10%SSTER
Also every order I will offer yixing clay teacup and tea towel as gifts.
