The clay is red shantou clay with high porosity. Besides the more porous clay, what's special about Shantou teapot is how they are processed: wheel thrown. That's why there are circular lines and no signs of connection inside the teapot. (See the last pictures) The walls below the cover are long and the curved spout is quite elegant. The pear shaped is very similar to a classic Yixing, which shows the connection between Shantou and Yixing teapot makers. This 10+ years old teapot has a small, single hole. It performs very well with strongly roasted Oolongs and puerh. As usual, don't be fooled by the seal. It says 'China Yixing'!
