  • Poorly Manufactured

Best Uses

  • Amusing Friends

I was so excited to get this product, however, upon opening I noticed the cat looks less like the one in the photo... and more like the face of "Mister Howdy" - the one from The Exorcist film.

When I was going to was the teapot out to begin seasoning it, I noticed the inside was sloppily carved and even with a microfiber cloth, bits of what look more like Terracotta than Zisha clay seemed to continuously flake off.

If I had known it was going to be just for show, I would NOT have shelled out that much money, just to give my film-nerd friends a chuckle. Ah well, live and learn.

Yixing teapots make the best tea

By Love that Chai

from Newberg, OR

About Me Tea Enthusiast

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        A lot of people think of these teapots as purely decorative, but they make the best tea imaginable. I have used the cat teapot for over 10 years and it just gets better with age. It is advisable to use only 1 type of tea per pot because the tea pot absorbs the flavor of the tea and becomes seasoned. I make my own chai tea and drink it every day. I even travel with it because I can tell the difference between my tea made in a regular pot and my pot. I like the cat tea pot because it is a little bigger and can hold 2 cups of tea (I also have a Yixing mug). Every avid tea drinker should own a Yixing tea pot.

        Cute but impractical.

        By TheForestHermit

        from Olalla, WA.

        This teapot maybe cute in the picture, but in use, it does dribble when you pour, and the handle gets hot oddly enough. Not hot enough to burn but very uncomfortable.

        Amazing Little Teapot

              This teapot is absolutely adorable and I love it. It holds a goodly amount of tea and cleans up quickly. The only problem with this teapot (and it is a very minor one) is that it will leak slightly when first pouring if teapot is full and it poured out quickly. If the pot is full, a gentle pouring solves this problem.

              Great buy

              By Chuckie-T

              from Columbus, OH

              This pot is wonderful:) It holds plenty of tea. Keeps it warm although I recommend getting a small warmer for it. It doesn't drip when you serve and of course is very cute:)
