I hope you don't mind I tell my true feeling of this teapot. I have seen many of similar kind teapots in china. They are very cheap(selling for $5/each in china). The clay is not natural color and it has added shoe polish(chemical color) to the surface to make it like old. This teapot should not be used.
I'm sorry to tell you straightly. May be you can bring it to your friends who has knowledge about yixing teapot to have a second opinion.
