Once it’s done, you can take off thermometer and place it upside down. There’s a disk that prevents water from running off. Now, you can enjoy your tea. By using Yixing Clay, an ancient Chinese material mined and applied hundreds years ago, you would enjoy better tasting tea experience due to a variety of mineral compositions of the clay. Those unglazed surfaces of YiXing Clay absorb traces of beverages, thus, creating a more complex flavor.
