Duan ni teapot

by Gustaw Michałowski » Apr 24th 19 11:50 pm

What tea is dedicated for duan ni yixing teapots? Is it for dark oolongs like da Hong pao or for light teas like Green or oolongs like Ti kyuan yin?

It can be dedicated to any tea, but light oolongs are probably the best choice.
However, I would stick to gaiwans or other more neutral vessels for green tea.

Puer, oolong, tieguanyin,green tea..etc
if the duan ni is fired more than 1170℃, you can use it to make all kinds of tea, it won't become black if you clean it every time.
