The combination of this pot’s wide lid opening and yellow color suggest it would be great as a dedicated pot for baozhong tea. Practical features include a large lid knob (easy to hold) and a well-constructed internal strainer. Fit and finish is very good, with a solid pour and about 80% flow control via the air hole regardless of lid position. The sanded duanni (yellow clay) has the suggestion of coarse texture, but is smooth to the touch. Every collection should have at least one pot in this comparatively uncommon material. Note that this is a fairly small teapot at 130ml, suitable for a 1-2 person service.
