Yixing Teapots

The internet is the bringer of many things — information at our fingertips (some true, some false, and no good way to tell the difference), and a wealth of products (some good and some that look much better in their photos than in person). Recently, I discovered an Amazon.com “shop” that carries a limited selection of yixing teapots in some fanciful designs. I stress “limited” — we’re talking 1, 2, or 3 of each in stock, and when they sell, that’s it.

I’m passing this along to you anyway, in case you’re interested and might want to check them out while they’re still available. And, yes, the quality is good, or at least I can vouch for the 3 that I just acquired to be buddies to Little Yellow Teapot.
