The special one

When i first saw this teapot, it was like love at first sight. I got attracted by the gold that was used to wrap around the edge of the lid and the rim of the body. Later i found out that these were the teapots polished to a brilliant shine. Most of them were exported to the Thai market, for the king. But this one was for the imperial court of the Qing dynasty.

The owner asked for a high price. As i liked it so much, i had to buy it.

It was good to brew kungfu tea. But nowadays i seldom use it to brew tea for fear that i might break it accidentally. You know, it is not easy to find another similar teapot, not to mention the years of history behind it.
