You might be right Brandon. I'm not quite an expert in this

No doubt! I'm very glad to hear that you like it (and I'm glad at least someone took my advice, if not the original poster. ) What teas have you tried for the pairing, and what effect has the pot had?

Good luck with the tea pairing. I just noticed the shop has four different pots all the same size in this same clay. It's not qingshui ni clay at all, but whatever it is looks decent enough. Very tempting to buy the whole set. If those four pots were made from this clay I'd have bought them already! Let us know how the teapot handles one of your favorite teas.

It may just be the flash from the camera, but many of his pots seem a bit too shiny.
