Over a period of time the surface of the tea pot can reflect the color of the tea that it brews and it's surface become increasingly glazed. The process of the surface becoming glazed called "yang hu", literally meaning "raise the teapot" in Chinese. Chinese tea people regard this process as a fun part of tea enjoyment.
