Yixing Tea Pots from China
Has anyone got a Yixing Tea Pot from China?
Does it really do what they say and carry the taste of the tea in the clay?
I really want to get one, but I would like to know what others have to say before I spend the money in case it is a gimmick.
Also, how do you know if the pot is authentic? Some are quite inexpensive and others seem to be very expensive. If anyone knows why there is such an extreme difference in prices of these little pots I would be interested to know.
Are the cheap ones fake? If anyone knows of a great place to get a real one online please let me know.
If you have a Yixing, please share your thoughts, they really seem like a great addition to a tea lovers collection.
Thanks a lot, I really hope someone can help me.
