A dragon from Taiwan

This is a teapot that I bought from Brett of Black Dragon Tea Bar several weeks ago. It was acquired during his most recent tea-related travels in Taiwan. Before seasoning it had a darker, very waxy, shiny surface on the outside, but it mellowed into the dusty surface it has now. It’s quite a photogenic piece of teaware, even dry, without the glistening and play of light from tea poured over and surrounding it.


  1. That is awesomeness of a pot you has there.

  2. The dragon head spout is adorable! This pot is teaware with *style*
