😳 That patina is coming on quickly. I assume you've been using It every day? It took me a few months of using my late 80's hong ni SP 10-15/wk to get a similar look. I'm on a mission right now to do the same for my newest pots.

Actually I use it once every other day, or 2 days out of 3 days or so.
I'm quite surprised too to see it gaining patina after a couple of months!
I assume it is because this pot is very porous, and I brew shen (10-15 years old).

I just received 2 unused green label hongni shuiping, so I will compare how they grow when I brew lighter oxidized tea.
