It is one of the best kettle you could have. There are many many Sha Diao on the market at many different size. The best Sha Diao has to be made by Chao Zhou clay mix with sand. The capacity shoudn never be too big. Red Clay Sha Diao gives a sweetness to the water. It is the best companion to Dan Cong. If I am ever going to make Dan Cong, I will only use Sha Diao as kettle. You love Dan Cong lot more once you have a Sha Diao as kettle.
