Purion Teapot

So after a few years of thinking about buying the purion 100ml I finally got one.

I had mixed thoughts about straying from the my loved yixing pottery.
 First impressions are good as I remove it from its small box.
Wow, it is better than I expected.
Its a beautiful little teapot and has a very grainy, sandy texture.
I think this is what I like best about it, the texture of the clay.

Below you can see it next to my Xishi.
Almost the same size. The Purion is 100ml.
It holds water very well and is very porous.
We will see how it infuses in the next few days.
Purion is supposed to be very well suited for aged puerh and dark roasted oolongs.
I will be trying it out with the older shengs I have.

Here is a japanese garden juniper which I have been working on for a few years.
I completely wired and gave it a windswept style this last year.
It has been growing well, but I still am contemplating removing the low cascading branch.
A work in progress.

 Spring is finally here!
