This little teapot is very cute but I make SUCH a mess pouring from it. As soon as I try to lift the pot away from the cup, it drips all over the place! Is there a "trick" to pouring without leaking? I've used the pot twice within the first week, but I'm not sure I'll continue to use it if there's not a better way.
I am very pleased with the look and feel of this tea pot. It is extremely easy to brew up to 24 oz. of tea, and serve it. I use two cast iron Japanese tea cups that each hold approximately 3 oz. each. The tea in the pot stays hot while multiple cups of tea are enjoyed. The colorful lotus picture is only on one side, and the other has mostly the white outline. This is not an issue for me, but where some complain about the pot's decor.
