Hi Melissa,



I was browsing through tea pots and came across your article, may I know where I can get a similar teapot.



In chinese or Japanese tea drinking, we will leave the teapot to oxide to obtain the look, it depends on the individual personal preference of visual display.    



Warmest regards,

Kenneth from Singapore
