This Shi Piao Hu is made of a darker zisha clay than this one. They are both from the same maker, but this darker one was made earlier, 7 years ago. Another difference is that the filter is flat (7 holes). The firing is excellent with a very high pitched sound. So, this zisha clay is rather hard and I had very good results with my old roasted Baozhong. But (unlike the previous Shi Piao) it will work well even with unroasted Baozhong, most Wuyi Oolongs and puerhs.
Update: I just made some of my spring 2007 'lily flower' Baozhong in this teapot. I can confirm that this Shi Piao also yields fragrant results with light Baozhong.
