Had nice light and a nice, borrowed camera this morning, so felt inspired to take some pictures. :)

This is a ~100 ml pot I purchased from a TeaChat member a few years ago. It was represented as being heini, but as you can see here, it's not black but very dark brown. I've read so many conflicting things about heini online, I've decided not to worry about it too much.

I don't use this pot as much these days as I should, but it's historically done well with heavy-roast oolongs. Although I usually don't like carved designs, I've always really liked the peony on this one.

Chadrinkincat, you may be right! I don’t remember this being on Jing’s site, but it seems consistent with their xiaopin Yixing aesthetic a few years ago. I can’t remember if the guy I bought it from said where he got it; I just thought it looked good.

It’s interesting how much the Western-accessible Yixing world has changed since then.

Yea access to good pots in the west has skyrocketed compared to 5-7yrs ago when very few vendors sold decent pots

NOS early 70’s 100ml Xian Piao with original wax coating. Truly high fired Hong ni. Should prob use this for balled oolong but it’ll likely get used for puerh instead since that what I mostly drink.
