Designed and manufactured by the
famous Lu Yu Art Institute in Taipei, Taiwan, the "Gemini" tea pot is for those who have birthdays between May 21 to June 21. This yellow teapot comes in a jewelry like case lined with red satin. Lu Yu teapots are known for their outstanding attention to the fit and finish of the piece. The teapot has an inner convex sieve which helps to prevent tea leaves from blocking the flow of the tea through the spout. Made from yellow clay and fired at a higher temperature for high
quality, the tea pot is ideal for serving semi-fermented teas such as Oolong, King's, Pouchong, and Ti Kuan Yin.
Yixing tea pots such as this one are prized
by tea connoisseurs because of the clay's special characteristics. With repeated
usage, this pot will acquire its own unique flavor and increased luster and
coloring that contributes to the enjoyment of tea. After usage, rinse with hot
water and avoid using soap and other scented products that may be absorbed by
