Well no offence or anything, but im only 15 so their is no way I can buy all these teapots for a decent yixing collection. Its interesting info though. Just wish I could fund such an endevor
There is no need too. My tea journey started when I was your age and I still have only 1 yixing for sheng pu but I can brew a mean oolong with my gaiwan

HB, If only you knew the number of times I had the right answer to the little quiz I made with my friend... Nothing to be proud of really...
But the test is really fun, for a start, (I love to have fun with tea) and it kind of opens your eyes on the different effects of your teapots, helping you to know them a little better.
But I must say that the more I do this kind of tests, the more the answer looks complex. My dedicated yan cha teapot is really good for a majority of them. BUT, a few of them are just better in another teapot, whereas some others are really better in a gaiwan... All of this being personal preferences
in the end I guess.
An advice for beginners : stick to the gaiwan
