I just realized something….
In my seasoning of the pots, I consistently neglected to pour tea over the bottom of the pot. I’m good about the lid, but the bottom…. ooops.
So, compared to the rest of the pot, the bottoms look unpolished and lack the lustre that the seasoned bodies have. The good thing about this is that it gives me a sort of control — to see how far my pots have progressed. However, when I lift it up and look at it, it’s not a pleasant sight.
Should I work on them? Or should I just leave them as the unconditioned surface? Hmmm
