Slick and elegant. The colour and texture of clay is just beautiful. It is not only a piece of equipment but also a piece of art. I am using it for oolongs, mainly yanchas. It removes most of astringencies and gives really different vibe from anything else I have ever tried. Can keep water temperature beautifuly and ages even more beautifuly. I have been using it for around four months and I would say it is best buy I ever made in tea world.
A beautiful marriage between art and function. Excellent craftsmanship. Teapot pours smoothly and the lid fit is perfect. Superb color and texture of the clay.
