Yixing modern zhuni Long Dan teapot
This new teapot achieves a good rendering of this style. I particularly like the knob. As I wrote before, it isn't just in harmony with the rest of the teapot (this one is also shaped like an egg), but it's very convenient to use.

Long brews tend to emphasize this character and add a note of bitterness. Gentle pouring of boiling water and shorter brews can make the tea much lighter and sweeter. With such a tea, gongfu cha skills matter a lot.
