This part of the forum feels neglected compared to the Yixing side.

Here's a 'new' little friend of mine from Chaozhou, alone and next to my 'huge' 90mL Chaozhou pot, which has seen plenty of use and has gotten a very nice shine.

The colours look a little off on my screen, though; in real life, the little pot's colour actually looks more like the big pot's colour, and the big pot is a deeper red... But unlike the big pot, this time I've remembered to take a 'before' photo of the little one. Perhaps I'll post an 'after' photo after a few months to see how shiny it gets.

Not the right light for true colour at night, so here is a black and white shot instead.

Shantou can be so beautiful and elegant, has its own particular charm and remains a guilty pleasure of mine.

Nice... curvy and elegant. And a nice shape for things like yancha and dancong.

My little pot has gotten nice and shiny already.

I've had great experiences with my two CZ pots, and I'm keen to learn more, but I assume that there's no easy way to learn about them without having them in your hand, even more so than with Yixing.
