2019 from Wuyi Origin?

Has anyone tried the 2019 selection of yancha from wuyiorigin yet?

@Stephen

This pot reminds me of mid 2000’s pot that Jing tea shop sold awhile back.

F1 or XMJ seems unlikely.

Re: Yixing

Hi All, I saw many of these tea caddies floating around on ebay range from 10s to 100s USD, so I pulled one to see if it would help with wet storage Pu erh.

Re: Yi xing thrift store score??

Chadrinkincatthat is very interesting! So that does exist in more recent times as well. I only ever saw it on old Zhuni before. But yours is clearly modern so that proves the opposite. Thanks! Don’t think it was intentional though. Not a feature that collectors normally cherish, so it would lower t...
