All traditional yixing teapots are supposed to be small. They are from China where tea is drunk in small one ounce cups, not large 8 ounce ones. The leaves are to be steeped for much shorter amount of time than suggested - around 30 seconds.

This is certainly a lovely little teapot, but it is really, really LITTLE....from the photo I thought it would hold two cups of tea, but it is tiny, like a teapot for a child. Also, the patina on the pot is not as the picture-- probably because it has not been used. I am looking forward to seeing how that changes though. If you want a yixing pot for more than one person, buy the other one that has the flowers on it.
