I usually think of yixing pots as well suited to heat loving teas like oolongs or puerh or blacks. Course there's no reason you can't just use cool water and enjoy a lovely (thin-walled) yixing pot for your white tea. Just watch the temp.
I think I would gravitate more toward a Japanese kyusu for whites. Not sure why. Maybe just because I am used to brewing sencha with cool water in them. I currently don't drink much white, but when I do I use an infuser basket or maybe a thin-walled gaiwan.
Also ... what Chip says below. Yixing seems to "take the edge off
" which is nice for an Assam, but maybe not so much so for SN.
