                                    Round Style Teapot
Considered by many to be feminine in style. It is best with tightly
packed teas like Monkey Picked oolong tea. Its roomy body allows
the leaves to fully open.

Square Style Teapot
 Has a masculine style.
 Walls are thicker
 making it ideal for
 teas that need strong
 oxidation and very
 hot water
 temperature to
 achieve its full flavor.

Ribbed Teapot
A very difficult design that is similar to round
teapots. Only very skilled artisans can make this with
proportional lid, body and spout.
