Ok! This is it! I have new teaware out. I have my little goat/sheep thing chilling in its hat cup. I have my YIXING POT OUT and rinsed and ready to go.
I haven’t used my yixing in MONTHS. It was so dusty.
My new cup dwarfs it. Teensy tea pot.
I think I don’t like the yixing mostly because it leaks like a fucking sieve. The lid doesn’t sit tight, but I swear when I used it in-store, it was fine.
And I can’t drink this tea. Smells like dried squid. Yep.
Ok, moving on.
(I’ve had it before and I don’t remember it being this bad. IDK.)
