Tea Pig

This is my new Yixing Teapot. It is sort of a novelty what with the pig theme and all, but the workmanship is pretty nice, the lid fits very well, pours well, and I find it quite attractive in composition. It is made of black zisha clay, and the pig on the top has 'fu' characters on it. I am using it for Shou Pu-erh, and I find it really brings out the flavors in a tea I had previously only brewed in a gaiwan. I can't wait to go to Yixing!
