What is the best tea vessel?

As a tea fanatic, I have many various tea pots and vessels for different steeps and service reasons. Over the years I have had some pots that drip as you pour and this has been very frustrating. My Matrie D skills say use a napkin to catch the drip, but for everyday brews not practical. My go to favorite tea pot is a Japanese pot which has a spout that angles in such a fashion it doesn't leak. Long spouts tend to leak more than short ones. Some brew teas without tea baskets or inserts which allow better steeping. I prefer baskets and they allow for multiple steeping, and easy clean-up. Some metal or ceramic tea pots may also be made with lead, so be mindful. Final answer is a short spout, with infuser and glass!
