Re: For Shui Ping lovers with small pockets...

In my experience F2 pots are usually not great in terms of clay quality. F1 pots before green label are in a different league from most modern pots, unless we are talking about modern pots made by masters who have access to great clay. If we are talking about F1 pots from the 90s then I'd agree wit...

FS: F1 Yixing biandend teapot (late 70s)

Up for a flash sale is a late 70s F1 hongni teapot. Lovely shape and a great pour. About 80ml, 8 holes filter. Was used with yancha a couple of times. Has a couple of chips on the lid and rim but just on the edges (see pics). Lid fit is somewhat loose as with many pots of that era. Price is $105 + s...

FS: 2 wood-fired cups by Petr Sklenicka (70ml)

Up for sale are two very nice woodfired cups made by Petr Sklenicka and purchased four months ago. They are about 70ml to the rim. They have seen very little use. I'm selling them cuz size is a bit off for me but otherwise, they are great. Price is $44 including US shipping (which makes it less than...

I suspect that this might be true about Taiwan but not about China. There are terrific teas -- way above average-- that are available to the west. One just ne...

Just like you, I generally prefer larger pots with my PuErh. But size interpretation is pretty different between tea drinkers. My favourite g...
