Re: Wistaria Teahouse

Bero is amazing. He has tons of fans (myself included). Sometimes he put things online for sale and they disappear within hours... He seems to have more following in Europe, yet I feel he is less appreciated than Petr Novak, yet a more versatile artisan in my book. Also not many do clay and porcela...

Re: Chaozhou/Shantou

I've been told this might be ROC or earlier. Pretty small, I'd guess <100ml. Funny, it's been sitting on my shelf for months, an Instagram post today inspired me to take it out and ask around to see what people thought. I got it on eBay for 40$. I just thought it looked old so thought, why not, for ...

@debunix they do both as well. The picture with biscuit sitting in the chair is right next to me at my tea table. She's the hangout one, chewy always wants me to play ball or tug of war with him. :D

Chewy is the one with the black patch on his eye, biscuit the all white Maltese. And another photo set https://www.instagr...

Re: Greatwheel//Greenwoodstudio

I just ordered two bowls from his etsy a week ago and have received no shipping notification, and no reply to my messages to him. I guess he's been inactive for quite a while? I hope he gets back to me.....

Re: Novak & Randova Teaware

It's been a while since I featured some of Petr's teaware. These are a pair of black magda glaze pots, and both are glazed inside. I keep them at the office because the glazed interior allows me to brew anything in them, including flavored gift teas that I would not infuse in an unglazed pot. I lov...

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

Had some long jing from the lazy cat yesterday. 3g in a 6oz mug grandpa style. It was delicious. From the package "First pick. Processed 23/03/2019. Wengjiashan, Xihu. Pre-Qingming." Edit: added some pictures of the leaves, not from the same session, from this morning doing some comparison to year ...

Re: Characteristics of good gaoshan?

I really enjoy the current iteration of her charcoal dong ding (exactly how it's called on the site). Also, a favorite of mine and many in my circle, is her 4 roast dong ding which is not available currently. That tea is actually the first tea that I was "addicted" too, in that I drank it all the ti...

Teachronicles, the metal on my handle is gray anodized aluminum. Yours is iron?

I like the wabi-sabi aesthetic of your handle.
I'm not sure what it's made of, but there's already a small amount of rust on the handle. And I agree, I love the look of it.
