Re: English-language Yixing books

Here is a Yixing book with English translation based on the K.S. Lo Collection from the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware in Hong Kong. I think it's from the 1990s.

Re: English-language Yixing books

Gingko_Seto has a copy on his eBay store https://www.ebay.com/itm/261866128576 That's way overpriced, maybe because it's a special edition? I got mine for a couple 100 rmb I think. Yes, it says special edition. Is your’s hardcover and come with a sample of clay? Also, Global Tea Hut has an issue de...

I almost snagged that pot but I couldn’t justify buying another bamboo pot.

Mark-S
Not sure what that carved pot is but I actually like this one too. What is on the lid?
@Chadrinkincat
I see, in that case, you probably seen this chop to know it’s a square bamboo haha

Re: Yixing

bliss and Mark-S I find the internet is only helpful on identifying chops that are fully written out in modern Chinese characters. I wish there is an App that decipher calligraphy.

Re: Yixing

A sideways anecdote: recent price I saw here for a 60s Hongni Shuiping 12-cups. Asking price the equivalent of 1600USD! M e n t a l . I knew these large ones are sort of rare, but that price is not worth it. For that price I can get a nice antique instead... yes those are steep. I might even consid...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

OCTO You seem very comfortable blending your tea. To me, blending tea is like those masters making puerh recipes. One needs to have some vision of the end product. With enough knowledge of your tea and control, you make a blend that enhance the original product. I read people in China are still try...

Re: Yixing

Andrew S Yixing clay is not a pure raw product, and changes could happened in any step. Recently I was looking up heixingtu/black star clay from early to mid 80s F1. I own 3 of those pots, each pot has different color shade, about the same texture, the characteristic meets the definition of how thi...

Re: Tea Utensils

@Bok illegal harvest is a serious issue in China and Southeast Asia. I remember you mentioned about this topic when we were talking about tea tray.

Re: Yixing

I follow the same approach as Dr. Lv, I will only comment on pots people own upon request by the owner. Actually, I was thinking that we should implement that as general forum policy. Maybe something to ponder for the admin’s I just wanted to comment that steanze and Bok along with other seniors ha...
