Stunning! The clay and craftsmanship of this pot is amazing. I have purchased my fair share of Zisha over the years, from various sources - struggling to find high quality handmade pots from a trusted source. No longer! Yanni has also helped to demystify a lot of information, which i am very grateful for. This will be the first pot of many and i can't see myself purchasing from anywhere else.
Mechanical details like nice lid fit, smooth pour, and good balance are not as important as high quality clay. But if I can find those details in a pot made of high quality clay I enjoy the pot all the more. Such is the case here.
Di Cao Qing is a versatile clay, and I have several pots made from it that I use for different teas. When I found that this teapot makes the perfect cup of Liu Bao I couldn't help dedicating it to that.
I love the clay of this teapot! It is great for ripe puer and lightly fermented oolong tea! The quality of the craft is excellent and it matches the price; I am happy with the purchase. If you are looking for a more detailed craft, Yanni provides a reliable source of quality product with good value because a good teapot can last you a lifetime.
Depending on the type of tea you drink and your palate profile, you may consider the other types of clays or buying a few of them. Different clays are meant for different teas. What works for you may not work for others.
