Sorry for the extra posts, but I can't figure out how to attach multiple pics in the same post

Also do I need to clean it a certain way before I use?

Clean? Yes, if its new. I always clean my new yixing, thats something like pot'reset ;p I put teapot to boiling water and I add some tea leaves(if you want used this pot to wuyi oolong, add wuyi oolong leaf;p etc.), and this teapot is 60min in this water. But it's my way, and that may not make sense.

Somebody else can write something?:)

But can I use any kinds of tea in it? So it looks like this is better to use for only 1 kind of tea and not different kinds??

Thanks for the response!! :D

Of course. This is clay and this clay will be absorb a tea taste. And if you will brew oolong wu yi tea in this teapot every day for two years, and after this 2 year u wil brew white tea you will feel the taste of oolong tea. Thats the simplest way to explain that. I want say more but I cant with my language level;) Sorry

Am I too often use "will"?. Sorry for language;)

Your teapot its not some masterpiece. That could be mass production.

Not Yixing. Just a replica made of "who knows." You can use any tea you like; I'm not quite sure about how porous it is because in that case then better dedicate it to one particular tea, let it be puerh, oolong...Why don't you try and see how it goes. Good luck!
