Re: Yixing

@Mark-S
From my understanding, these marks were used as a way to match lid to body after firing.

What do you think of this pot? It's too small / expensive for me but it's kind of interesting.

@Mark-S
No it is not cone shaped. I merely filed out the bits of clay inside hole. Don’t ruin your pot by trying to completely reshape the air hole.

@Mark-S

I don’t have any pictures. What are you expecting to see? Your pot isn’t rare or valuable so I wouldn’t overthink it unless your planing to resell it.

Re: Yixing

TeaTotaling I noticed that tall 80’s duanni pot from ZAG was sold. Did you end up buying it? I’ve been trying to convince myself to buy that LQER hongni pot but ultimately decided against it. I came to the conclusion that it probably wouldn’t see much use due to size and price (fear of breaking). M...

Re: Yixing

I used a yixing teapot for the first time. I received mine bronze grade zini from chanting pines. I have one coming from Bok pretty soon. The teapot is 120ml so I put 5 grams of leaf in and the pour speed using tea was 9-10 seconds. There was no scalding myself and the whole experience was very enj...

Re: Yixing

Wouldn't the missing lid be a dealbreaker? And why is this jar so expensive and my jar isn't? Sometimes I simply don't get it. :roll: https://www.teaforum.org/viewtopic.php?p=22279#p22279 It's "Proven" to be Mid Qing? From a Trusted source? ...or are they?? Maybe they have me duped!!

Re: Yixing

Good sir, have you made any purchases from the fine folks at ZAG? Specifically in the Yixing Teapot Department? If so, thoughts?? Nope, not yet. And I did not mean to criticize them. Sometimes, I just don't understand their pricing. ;) Things are always cheaper when the purchaser is the one identif...

Re: Yixing

@TeaTotaling
Weird for some reason I was thinking this one was around 120ml.

Do you know the price on this one?
