As long as we are comparing what we got...
I bought this:https://www.etsy.com/transaction/117895350
for $21 + $3sh
Etsy isn't exactly a normal place to look for teapots, and I've never seen one with a metal strainer like that. But, it seemed inexpensive enough to take a risk. Worst case it looks nice on my shelf.
I'm assuming this is mass-produced.
Seller says it was only used once or twice. I'm thinking of using it for raw pu-erh.
Well, I'll let you all know how it is when it comes.
I think I'll check out this flushing fellow... if he's in queens I could bike out there. even better.
