I never showed off the purion pot that I got from Lin's Ceramic in Taiwan. So far I think it's best suited for roasted oolongs, since the taller shapes allows for the leaves to unfurl and the pot is high fired.

taking these photos made me realize how difficult it is to nail focus

I went to the Lin's at Taipei 101 due to time constraints, but it turned out to be a blessing since the shopkeeper was very generous and brewed me many rounds of tea. Or maybe she was bored and was glad that there's a tea enthusiastic tourist to talk to haha.

I really like the texture of this purion pot, which is unlike the smooth surface of my yixings and jiansui.
