I'm brand new at this. Just happened to stop in the shop and decided to give this a try. I bought some tea, a pot and other accessories. I haven't used any of it yet because I think Daniel mentioned that I need to 'cure' the pot first (or something like that). I could not find the directions of what this means or what I'm suppose to do. Can someone please explain. Thanks!
I just scrubbed and boiled my new pot yesterday but haven't tried making the strong brew in it yet and am not sure that I will. I am looking forward to giving it a try. We just happened into the shop ourselves as we only had the day in Vancouver and really had no plan. So it was all very accidental...some say there are no accidents.....?
I have bought a tea pot in your shop. I wonder if I have to cure it? Thank you
It is hygiene, for it enforces cleanliness; it is economics, for it shows comfort in simplicity rather than in the complex and costly; it is moral geometry, inasmuch as it defines our sense of proportion to the universe.

I bought a yixing tea pot in your shop when I was visiting Vancouver in August. I haven't yet seasoned it because I can't figure out how to line a pot with a cloth in order to boil it. Specifically, I don't know how to secure the cloth in the pot to keep the teapot from banging against the sides of the pot while the water boils. I would appreciate any suggestions you have. Thank you.
Try using a large cloth that sticks out over the top of the pot you're using to boil the water in. If you have a tight fitting lid, that should secure the cloth. I just wrap the teapot in a big cloth on it's own. I also wrap the lid separately so it isn't banging against the teapot when the boil starts.
