A nice treat for me

I didn't have a tea pot. I bought the traditional Japanese tea pot. The is kept warm for awhile so I can enjoy more than 1 cup without heating the 2nd one.

Bit disappointed

I bought the dragonfly teapot just over a year ago. It is very pretty but the steeping basket is not great. I have found it is not deep enough to allow loose leaf tea room to steep well. When I do use it I put the tea directly in the pot using the basket as a strainer when pouring the tea. This works but makes re-steeping difficult and cleaning is a bit messy.
