Sorry to have to say that I cannot recommend this one. I just received that same teapot and it turned out to be the worst pourer that I have so far. Not only is the hole in the lid too small, even when the lid is lifted slightly will the first drops go everywhere other than your cup. I am sure that I have seen a website recently that had a lot of good looking porcelain teapots on. I will have a look if I can find it again and report back
Edit: that did not take as long as I thought
Take a look at http://www.chawangshop.com/index.php/te ... apots.html
They look nice (with a potential for pouring into the intended direction) and do not break the bank
I hope the OP notices your post as another source of porcelain pots.
I'm surprised that your pot from Yunnan Sourcing doesn't pour well as my pot from Tea Trekker, which looks the same in photos, does. I'm not sure if the type of tea makes a difference. I use mine mostly for Jasmine Silver Needles, or whatever Jasmine I have at home at the time.
