What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
Yes, this is small but...
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.
