Recently our friend Mr. Gan went back to Japan and got some new teapots from the old masters there. Last night I bought one of them. There was also a matching gong-bei so naturally I had to get that too! Matching items are so rare that if you ever find them, you should buy them.
What makes this teapot so unusual is that its 2-toned, and also that the master painstakingly gave it a peened finish, all by hand.
I also got some of the new Taiwan spring tea. This is the best oolong tea that I have yet experienced. It is unbelievable!
