Yep. I'm aware of the received wisdom stating that one should only use a Yixing pot for a specific kind of tea. But I like a variety of tea, and have a limited number of pots. Ah well ... .
If you are going to share brewing vessels for different teas, I would recommend a glazed or even a glass brewing vessel. The yixing will impart flavors from various teas into your brew.
I too like a lot of variety...but I dedicate yixing to one tea only.
Quality Japanese sencha that is properly stored, packaged, and fresh truly rocks...extremely flavorful!!! But I know it is not everyone's cuppa. Proper preparation is very critical with Japanese green tea...it is very unforgiving.
