        I got this teapot expecting to be drinking 20 oz. at a time...I don't know why I thought that. The Teavana glass teaisms tea cups only hold about 1 and 1/2 cups, or 12 oz. So think twice if you're the only tea drinker in your household, as I am. It is a gorgeous little piece of pottery, though, and I'm glad I got it. The other thing you need to know is that the strainer is located at the base of the spout, so you don't have the option to remove the tea leaves between steepings. The first time I used it was with Gyokuro Imperial green tea, which fine enough to let some tea leaves into the cup. I don't really mind that, but I think in the future I'm going to use the teapot with Silver Yin Zhen Pearls white tea: the in-pot strainer will keep the pearls from being poured into the cup, and the white tea will benefit from the slight temperature drop from 175 degrees which will happen when I pour the hot water into the room-temp measuring cup.

        I gave this pot five stars because I love the design, and it is exactly what Teavana says it is.

        Buddha Tree Yixing teapot

        By Tea pot collector

        Cute and whimsical teapot, but it arrived broken. They are sending another pot, but I am concerned that this teapot does not pack well. I am also concerned about drinking tea from the pot since it is not glazed on the inside.

        Love This Pot

              I have to agree with the other reviewers about the difference in the color from the picture here. However, I have another Yixing pot that a friend brought me back from her travels in China, so I knew that the clay is much darker. I think Teavana should change the picture here, so buyers can see the actual color. I don't mind that it's darker. The pot is, as stated, very whimsical, and I love the Buddha's in the tree theme. Plus, who couldn't use some "purity and enlightenment." I wanted something larger then the plain little 8 oz. pot my friend brought me, so that makes this a perfect addition.

                  I bought this based on what I saw in the store. It was unique and I wanted to add it to my Yixing teapot collection. The actual teapot I received was darker than the photo. I had wanted the lighter bark for the tree, but it will do. I use this pot for my jasmine teas because this type of pot holds the scent better over time.

                  • Larger than personal pot

                    Best Uses

                    • Scented tea for aroma

                    The pot I received is much darker than the one in the photo. That's why I gave it only 4 stars. The pot itself is a little larger than the other personal teapots. I like the buddha in the tree theme. It was a whimsical purchase and I like it overall. However, in the future I think I will wait and purchase in a store when I can be sure the color is what I want.

                      I use this pot for Jasmine Oolong only and the more I use it the better the flavor from this beautiful pot. It was worth the money that I spent and I would spend it again. I love this little pot.
