Bought this tea yesterday because the price was right and wanted to try a fully fermented red tea. suggestions regarding specific claypot would be appreciated, something more porous or a denser clay?

Panyong Congou can be amazing. The one I tried from Dragon Tea House on Ebay was one of the best teas black teas I've ever had.

I didn't brew it very fancy, however; a small ceramic pot (250 cl) with boiling water for ~ 3 minutes.

I would recommend putting your tongue to the top of your mouth while savoring the after taste. I noticed a lovely flowery aroma while doing so.

Good luck.
