These are simple 170ml Chaozhou porcelain teapots with five-hole internal filters and a 22-second pour. The handle is a classic Chaozhou-style design and is very practical and well-designed for regular use. The Chaoshan region has the highest per capita tea consumption in China and the design of this pot is testament to the region's no-nonsense approach to tea.

I love simple porcelain teapots for testing teas and I feel they're much more comfortable to use than a gaiwan. They also tend to have much better heat retention, making this type of teapot a much better choice for heicha and pu erh, as well as oolongs or black tea you might want to push hard. You can also use them for more delicate green, yellow or white teas and leave the lid off until it's time to pour if you prefer a more delicate heat curve! This is truly a great teapot for the money and I will definitely be using mine regularly for testing teas and just general consumption where I feel clay will take too much of the complexity and subtlety away. I'd recommend one of these to anyone: they won't break the bank and there's no need to worry about damaging a fancier clay pot or what the clay is doing to your liquor with these.

I tested this pot with Xiaguan's 2011 Early Spring 8113 Bulang today and it performed wonderfully!
