Ernie the Seasame Teapot

I felt it was necessary to christen my first sort-of expensive clay teapot that I bought from Melaka. This teapot is made of Sesame Duan Ni Clay – this reminded me of Sesame Street, which led me to my favourite character there, Ernie.

Everyone, this is Ernie. Isn’t it interesting how an originally beige-earthy pot is actually sporting a similar Ernie orangey shade after being “broken in”? (but this is also partially due to the lighting) I’m drinking some very nice, flowery Tieguanyin from Wang Xi’s stash. It makes a good five brews!
