League of Pots #020

Code Name: "Little Plum" (小梅 )

Material: Black Clay
Height: 6 cm
Length (handle to spout): 11 cm
Volume: 140 ml

Brews: Lightly oxidized oolong teas from Taiwan
Specialty: Alishan High Mountain Tea
Story: Little Plum is a very inexpensive clay pot from CCCI (a wholesaler based out of California). She was purchased by a friend last year at Teacup (the tea shop I work at here in Seattle) but the good chap didn't really like the way she poured so I gave him a store credit and adopted Little Plum. I have since overcome her "quirks" and now use her frequently to brew tea at work.
Super Powers: She may be small but she is loud! Little Plum has the ability to generate vocal sounds at any decibel level. Little Plum can also "throw her voice" making it appear to be coming from any source she chooses (which would explain her day job as a ventriloquist).
