Funky indeed! Can't help but seeing something NSFW hanging out :lol:
Dirty little squirrel pot!
Workmanship seems ok though.
Oh? You have better eyes than I. :shock: Does the squirrel have his "acorns" out? That makes it even better!

Funky Contemporary Yixing?

I just bought this teapot online tonight, so these aren't my pics. Apologies for the low resolution and lack of a decent chop photo. I really don't know much about contemporary Yixing, but this was quite cheap, and I've never seen one like it. It's supposed to measure a bit over 5" wide and 4.5" tal...

Re: FS- Several Yixing Teapots

Pot 6 - $110 95cc qingshuini Rou Bing. Excellent clay and med-high firing. Good lid fit with long skirt. Single hole filter, but I have since installed a custom 99% pure silver wire filter (can be removed). Not sure of the era, but it's not a Factory pot. Likely 90's. Strong pour. Would be a killer...

Re: FS- Several Yixing Teapots

Pot 5 - $60 172ml Pigeon Beak zini. Likely a non-Factory 90's repro, but great clay and med-high firing. Good lid fit. 14-hole filter. Cleaned and prepped. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1785/43048666302_082de53948_z.jpg https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1768/43048667202_e91b88c835_z.jpg https://c1.stat...

Re: FS- Several Yixing Teapots

Pot 4 - $65 160cc "3 Friends of Winter" Teapot. Nice clay, but not original Factory 1 pot. Probably a repro from the 90's. Cleaned and prepped. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1808/43098674051_b3f1a21fe5_z.jpg https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1823/28229819017_9f6f3477df_z.jpg https://c2.staticflickr.com...

Pot 3 - $110 115cc Factory 2 zini. Med-High firing. Single hole. Very nice clay and decent lid fit.

Re: FS- Several Yixing Teapots

Pot 2 - $95 65cc Nei Zi Wai Hong (zini coated with hongni). Mid-Late 80's Factory 2. I actually like this pot better than the F1 NZWH pots I have owned because of the great size, 7-hole filter, and it seems to be a bit higher fired than F1. Holds heat very well. Some lid wiggle room, but doesn't dr...

Re: Tong-worthy teas

I have not tonged anything, but I have gotten multiple cakes of the 2003 YS Mengsong Qiao Mu Iron Cake. It's great and great value. That one comes in a paper tong though! I have also considered CLT Daydream because it's good price/quality ratio, and the energy/taste was spot on for me. Edit: JK, I'...

In the first picture? It's a flat julunzhu shape, the size is about 120ml.
Yep, I have simple tastes. Love the round bodies, canon spouts, and disc knobs. :D

Re: "Oolong Puerh" Processing

Sun drying vs indoor/oven drying must have a considerable effect as well.
