Owes its flavors to oxidation levels between green & black tea.

I use early-80s pots for Gaoshan..quite small ones (somewhere around 90ml)..just personal preference though,

I'd think this tea has a quite wide range of choosing, from F1 to high-fired Zhuni, or Taiwanese local teawares..I heard Nei Zi Wai Hong also performs well with Gaoshan..my two cent.

Thin-walled zhuni (first choice)
Hongni
High-fired jiangpo ni (got one that does a brilliant job) & qing shui ni (same).


Taller pots do better as well.

I am with tingjunkie, thin zhuni/hongni or porcelain. I would avoid anything thick (unless you want the tea to taste a bit like spinach) and anything too porous
e.g. the pot on the right here: http://i1287.photobucket.com/albums/a63 ... mdtjcd.jpg

This one works too although I didn't use it for gaoshan: https://www.instagram.com/p/BB_fO0El9q7 ... by=steanze
