This is a perfect teapot for everyday use. The porcelain ceramic will not accumulate tea residue the same way a traditional unglazed gongfu pot will. This allows for more versatility in brewing different types of tea in the same pot. The aesthetic quality of the white porcelain also offers a sort of cross-cultural style between Chinese gongfu style tea and English tea. If you are looking for one pot to suit all types of tea brewing occasions, this is the one!
