I'm looking to highlight the fruity character of some red teas and I'm trying to crowdsource opinions on what the best pot material for that would be. Do you have any thoughts?
Glass and porcelain works best. If you must have a pot, I strongly suggest high fired Red clay.

I use porcelain kyusu or Seto glazed pots for Taiwan reds and Indian/Nepal blacks. I think to bring out the fruity aspects of a tea -fooling around with leaf quantity/type of water/steep time will be more important.
