I’d like to know more, does anyone know? I’m assuming they used a larger glazed type of pot instead of a 150ml yixing.

You use past tense in your question and I think mostly likely the pot used was very similar to what we use today. For boiling Chinese herbs, I use a very large (850ml?) side handle thick ceramic pot that is glazed inside, sometimes outside also. It goes on a gas stove over a diffuser, and or over open flames.

That is some very interesting style of pot!
Qi pottery on instagram posted once that in the past mostly side handle pots were used to cook medicine.
