Re: How much will you spend on tea this year?

One Jin can last me maybe two months at the most. That sounds right for my current consumption too. I'm in the ameature leagues compared to you guys :lol: And that's just tea exclusively just for your own use too? Makes me feel like I should start drinking more than I do. Maybe I'll relax a little ...

Re: How much will you spend on tea this year?

And it's been that way since the beginning too! Nothing has really changed much aside from our access to more tea and teaware over time. Always humbling to think about how many teas/teawares I've been able to use and try since I've gotten more serious about tea(since 18 I guess but have been drinkin...

Re: Hokujo teaware

How did you end up doing it? I've never had a side-handle teapot that size before.. so the only way I can imagine holding it is between my first two fingers between the handle and my thumb on the top. yeah I'm still debating on whether or not I should pull the trigger on one.. so we'll see. I should...

Re: How much will you spend on tea this year?

You people are all so wealthy! :mrgreen:
I spend around only 100 or so a year on tea... but I only drink Sencha and am mostly a solo drinker so I'm guessing that may be the reason between the "discrepancies" of what I spend vs everyone else :mrgreen:

Re: Hokujo teaware

Wow it looks so tiny :D its a cute one!
I have to ask... hows the pour?
I've been thinking for awhile now about replacing my old direct filter pot with a nanban one... but the the pour( and the price) are scaring me off :lol:
Any problems you've noticed so far yet?

Re: Yixing

^Nice 70's shui! I know f2 probably does not have the best reputation(maybe it it deserves it) but they did I think definitely produce some nice stuff earlier on and in fact early on they used the same clay that f1 was using at the time... Here's my 80's zini xian piao. Clay is really smooth and glo...

Re: Gisui Natsume(eggplant) kyusu

Looks like I can't edit the title again but it looks like I made a mistake in making the title.
I meant to write "eggplant"(茄) instead of "pear” :mrgreen:
Sorry for the mix-up!

Re: Ode to the Kyusu

Looks similar to the feldspar that's usually added to rihi(pearskin) pots.. but obviously they don't turn out so purple in the end :mrgreen:

Nice nanban pot :!:
Really like the look of the purple grains that he mixed in with the clay.
Do you know what they're made of?

Gisui Natsume (eggplant) kyusu

Hi all! I put this up for sometime in sale during December, but due to the lack of interest I decided to pull it.

Re: Gisui Natsume kyusu(140ml)

Thanks to everyone who showed interest in this, but ive decided im going to take this one off the market. Probably a bad time to be selling teapots so close to the holidays anyway accounts for less interest+ my own renewed interest in experimenting with it means im just going to hold on to this one ...
