It's the kind of teapot which dribbles half the tea down the spout when you tip it over and pour it out, but it makes me smile when i catch its eye.
The tea cannister on the left with the happy buddhist monk on it originally contained four little mooncakes. now it contains chrysanthemum-jasmin tea, hurrah!
