It's a typical QSN shipiao. Anything except Oolong would be fine I think...

Entirely up to you :D
Whenever I get a new clay pot I first prep it and then try it out with all sorts of tea in order to find the best possible match - nobody else could do that for me.

Thanks for your answer :)

As I am a beginner in teapots, may I ask you what is QSN ? I know shipiao is the name of the shape, but I'm not sure I've seen these initials before...

You wouldn't consider Oolongs in this teapot, is it because of the shape, or the clay ?

Sorry for having such basic questions... :oops:

Oh !!! It makes sense, of course...

I don't know why, I was searching for a specific factory, or a time period. Sorry again :(

QSN can sometimes absolutely sing with green tea. You might also have success grandpa'ing oolongs. I like pu erh in QSN too. Pu erh is probably the best option, but try all three!
