Re: Yixing

@enjoi


It’s a bummer when this kinda mistake happens.
Hopefully the seller is willing to give you a refund or at the very least store credit.

Re: Yixing

Speaking of bright yellow duanni. This one is from the 1970’s but not made by F1. Only $700 😂 https://chantingpines.com/collections/post-qing-antique-yixing-teapots/products/duannishuipinghu1970s :lol: It's not from the '70s... Well obviously it was made by a renegade potter at their secret studio....

Re: Show Off Your Teaware Displays

@Balthazar, @.m.

Thanks! I found this cabinet in Philly on 1stDibs for a measly $40. I’m glad I held out for a couple months instead of spending 10x on something new from Ikea.

Re: Show Off Your Teaware Displays

My latest setup for all of my tea ware. It has a decent amount of empty space for future purchases, although I don’t see myself buying anything new for awhile. I use the top surface area for recently used pot which need to dry.

Re: Yixing

Oh, and there isn't naturally blue or green clay in yixing, never existed. Those are made with added cobalt or chromium oxide. Are you saying there's no green zhuni either? :mrgreen: https://taiwanoolongs.com/collections/authentic-yixing-collectibles/products/2000s-speical-zhu-ni-chu-fang This is w...

Re: Dayi 7542

There are a number of Aliexpress vendors currently selling the 2010 edition for €13 or €14 a cake. This seems suspiciously cheap for brand-name factory cake of such an age. Would that have been a lesser year? Dayi is #1 counterfeited brand. Too cheap to be legit unless vendor hasn’t updated their p...

Re: Yixing

tingjunkie My first thought when I saw this pot was modern copy. Clay seems too uniform and lacks flaws/tool marks typically found on these pots. A bunch of those Japanese eBay sellers regularly offer pots that look exactly like this. $100-150 Here’s an example of similar shape that I got from TWL ...

Still it makes me wonder... what kind of "material" is this made of O__o
It’s Likely made of tea dust/scraps that the teabag industry rejected. Not indented for human consumption so prob contains high levels of toxic pesticides etc and glue/resin.

@Mark-S

You still looking for a pot like this? Looks like it might be a late 80’s version w/ standard zini. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 4423284339
