    Perfect little gong fu tea pot!

    Maxine , Jan 2015

    I bought this for my Niece for Christmas and she adores it. She said making the tea is the perfect ritual for relaxing her while studying after college, rather than coming home and making giant mugs of hot chocolate! She uses it daily & said the peppermint loose leaf tea infuses beautifully.

    A fantastic little tea pot. No metal parts so no corruption of flavour. Beautiful to look at, a treat to use and the resulting cup of tea is perfect. Very fast delivery from Jing. All in all a very happy customer. Thankyou.

    When I opened the box (with certain concerns, I don't like buying stuff online without having seen it beforehand), I was gladly surprised: I found a little, pretty and delicate teapot. But I don't love it only because of its looks: it is the perfect size for a good cup of tea, and it cleans very well. So happy I got it (already thinking of buying another as a present).

    Perfection in a Teapot

    BETH R, Sep 2011

    This is surely the cutest teapot ever! It is perfect in every way - the right size; glass so you can watch it brew; mine pours beautifully and the leaves are kept in by the built-in strainer. I adore it.

    My favourite teapot!

    Steph, Apr 2011

    After a few teething troubles this is now my favourite teapot. It's such an appealing rounded shape and makes just the right quantity of tea: enough that you aren't constantly going back to the kettle, but not too much for a single tea drinker to get three infusions out of her leaves in one session. At first it was hard to pour without dribbling (see the video clip of gongfu tea on the JING site for an example), but after a couple of weeks of dabbing puddles, I've got the wrist flick just right. My only remaining quibble is that after making puerh in it, the glass filter in the spout is slightly stains and I haven't figured out how to clean inside the spout. JING please advise!

    Go to teapot

    Al, Jan 2011

    I was bought this pot about a year ago. I own a lot of teaware from banko clay pots to zhuni to JDZ gaiwans. And this little baby is the one I reach for when I want no fuss, simple honest tea.

    Its got a great shape, nice size and strong glass. Another major plus for me is there's a glass filter built in rather then a metal one. I'm not a fan of having metal in the brewed tea....I just dont like it.

    Size wise this is too big for gongfu for me.......even for 4 people which I'd use a 180ml gaiwan instead. So I basically use it for "semi" gongfu and western style brewing.

    I really like to pack the vessel with leaves though when I do gongfu so what I class as "semi" gongfu would probably be the sweet spot for a lot of people.

    Glass teapots are really laid back...there's no need to time the brew or be mindful of time passing you can just glance over and check the colour making it an excellent choice for being away from my tea station.

    I'd give it 9/10...if I was going to tweak it a little I'd lower and widen the spout slightly, but other then that its spot on...so i'll round it up and give it 5 stars.

    Cheaper than multiple Yixing

    mr dorian ralph, Jul 2010

    This is a great teapot for one, excellent if like me you drink many different kinds of tea and want to ensure the cup you are drinking isn't tainted with other teas.
    I've never been a fan of Yixing teapots mostly because of the philosophy that you need one teapot per kind of tea.

    Anyone who knows their tea will know that many oolongs are vastly different from one another, many puerhs are vastly different.
    I only use a Yixing for ONE kind of tea, Jing's brilliant 2003 wild yi wu raw puerh.

    Considering the price of Yixing teapots, and that many people like myself may drink 12 or more varieties in a week or two, this quickly becomes financially infeasible.

    This great little Glass Gong Fu is perfect, a quick rinse and all the contamination from another tea is gone.

    It's also better than a Yixing for certain things, for temperamental teas you can guage brew strength easilly as it is indeed clear glass.

    Anji Bai Cha looks especially beautiful in one of these.
