Our teapots are handmade specifically for the purpose of brewing Chinese tea including green, oolong, black and puerh. The body, lid, spout, and handle are carefully hand thrown, trimmed, then assembled to make each pot. 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, to take care of these details to make a pot that you'll enjoy using and looking at for many years to come.
