I have decided to use the new pot by Seong-il for green oolongs. Tonight I've prepared delicious infusion after delicious infusion of Diamond TGY from Norbu in this gem of a pot.
It is a teapot with attitudeTeapot

it does not have facets on the little body of the pot, but the lid has a spritely faceted handle that makes me smile every time I look at it
The size is wonderful, holding just 60 mL, but even so small it has nice details, like the strainer in the spout
The neat pour from this
and a delicately curled handle
In my teapot 'tasting'
this morning, it had only slight effect on the water, and it seems to be preserving all the wonderful floral, sweet, and spicy highlights of the TGY I'm brewing tonight. It seems quite solidly built for such a little pot, and I have high hopes it will serve me for many years of happy teatimes.
