It's a very cute tea pot. It's small so it's good for gongfu brewing. I can use it for all kinds of teas, black tea, white tea, oolong tea etc. The filter is a little big so big leaves tea works best. For smaller tea leaves, there will be some tea leaves come out but it's acceptable amount. Sometimes I chose it over my Yixing pot because I can see how the tea color and leaves are changing, and it's neutral for the taste.
