Re: Yixing

Youzi Sorry, that I misunderstood you. I won't pour tea over my pots, because I really don't like these stains you can see on the pots from teachat. They are ugly and maybe even unhealthy. Btw, you can just rinse the pot with hot water after you put the lid on, then you avoid uneven stain. Thanks, ...

Re: Yixing

Teachronicles Oh noooo! 🥺 How did it happen?? Did it take an accidental fall?? It pains me to see, I can only imagine how hard you must have taken this. I feel your pain. Thankfully the repair looks to be on point. It was rough when I first noticed them, forsure. At first I thought I had caused it ...

Re: Yixing

TeaTotaling yeup, it's the Zag one. Mark-S yeah it was more than $150 Victoria the hairline on the side only goes half way up the pot, starting on the underside actually. That is why the staples are only in the lower half. I'll be away from home till tomorrow evening, I can get a pic of the inside ...

Re: Yixing

Sorry the pictures arent sequential in the hairline and then corresponding repair. Staples in the lid and on the side body, as well as a silver ring around the bottom of the lid...

Re: Jian & Tenmoku Bowls

Maybe I’ll just have to do some looking the next time I manage to make it to Taiwan/Japan. Ive heard of stands at the side of the road in taiwan and Japan selling tenmoku cups for much cheaper than you'd be able to get them at online Western catered vendors. So that might be a good idea to wait. :o...

Re: Yixing

archimon That 1st pot doesn’t look like pure hongni. It might be zini coated inside + out w/ hongni which would explain why it is so cheap. The second one is definitely a significantly better pot since it is pre-77 hongni w/o any additives. The EOT pot is a poor choice for Gaoshan due to muting pro...

@Balthazar Ime, people that fall deep into the rabbit hole of pot collecting, don't skimp on tea quality either, tho of course there are exceptions.

Re: Yixing

For me, good clay comes purely down to its affect on tea. For me, in my experience, with yixing wares ranging from LQER all the way up to modern, including f1 60s, 70s, 80s, and white label, excluding laser label. I have found that most prominent effect I notice is textural, with actually a modern z...

Re: Yixing

Bok, and anyone else with experience. Does LQ/ER clay take time to awaken, before it really shines, as opposed to aged clay used for making modern pots. Bok, I know you mentioned in the other thread that 60's Hongni took a little time to come into it's own again. Linear thinking would have me to be...
