Q: Which tea is this teapot best used for? Posted on 7/27/16 by Jay Spain-Taylor
Reply: Thanks for the question.
Generally speaking, Zisha is more suitable for Pu'er or Oolong, for they need relatively high water temperature.
Note: Due to the highly absorbent qualities of zisha clay it is best to dedicate each individual teapot to only one variety of tea. The teapot will take on the character of the tea it has been married to.
Hope it helps.
