But there are other steeping vessels, and our new guide shows you not only how we teapots line up but what some great alternatives are. Check it out! TOOOT!

We teapots are essential to your tea time, dear humans, and fortunately for you we come is an astoundingly wide array of styles. We also seem to be a very attractive thing for potters to make.

Teapot abuse is on the rise. Whether it’s a lovely pink teapot being set out in freezing cold and snow just for a human to take a photo of her, as we showed in this article, or me being gotten up from a deep sleep to steep tea for my humans (as has happened countless times), the trend is growing at an alarming rate.

The second thing is to start a world-wide movement to save my cousin teapots from such abuse (not having feet, we teapots need your help to get around to do this).

Time to do an update. And to share with you some important lessons learned since then. Continue reading Another Look at the World of Yixing Teapots→
