Yixing Teapots

I received these Yixing teapots a couple of months ago and have been having fun testing them out.

西施壺 XiShiHu 160ml
I tried out different kinds of Roasted Oolongs in this pot and other pots. I am really impressed how well a Roasted Oolong tastes in this pot.

高潘壺 GaoPanHu 100ml
This pot works well for aged Green Puers.

高虛扁壺 GaoXuBianHu 90ml
A great little pot for Green Oolongs.

南瓜壺 NanGuaHu 150ml
I like how a Cooked Puer tastes in this pot.

石瓢壺 ShiPiaoHu 110ml
Green Puers work well in this pot.

*Thank you, Douglas King, for providing these pictures.

It's very interesting how the shape of the pot influences the tea!

To Steph,

Indeed! I had a lot of fun trying to figure out what tea fits in each pot.
