Seven Cups Sunrise Pear Yi Xing Pot
The design on the pot invokes an image of the sun rising over water. This is created by a method called “jiao ni” and is accomplished by mixing clay and using it to create a natural landscape design without painting on the surface. I seasoned this pot according to the directions on Seven Cup’s website. It took most of the day but it was worth it because my first cup of tea was absolutely perfect. Subsequent steepings have been even better. I think I'm in love :). I will have a review of their Oolong tea that I used in it forthcoming.
