Our teapots are handmade specifically for the purpose of brewing Chinese tea whether it's green, oolong, black or puerh. The body, lid, spout, and handle are carefully hand thrown, trimmed, then assembled to make each pot. Behind the spout is at least a 7 hole filter. We put in a lot of effort into making spouts that have a nice pour and lids that fit snugly. We put in the time, taking care of these details in order to make a pot that you'll enjoy using and looking at for many years to come.
