Looks like a lovely texture of the clay on these pots. New or old?

Kind of of a crossover “Chaozhou/what oolong are you drinking”, my latest teapot from the Chao mountains having some lovely Dancong. Hard to beat the combination...

I have a CZ pot that I got from Tea Habitat ages ago when I drank dancong. I don't drink much dancong anymore, and I remember that the pot did well with young sheng puerh. Do you think that it'd do with "teenager" sheng that brews up orangish (5-10 years in dry storage)? Trying to work with what I have before getting more teapots.

I don't see any reason why not! Give it a try and let us know your findings... I have one ChouZhou pot that is solely dedicated to Sheng Puerh.., both young and aged. I also have another CZ pot that is dedicated to YanCha, specifically mid fired DaHongPao.

My take..... give it a try! The result may surprise you!

Cheers!!

Finally... crossed one long searched for item off my list: Biandeng in Chaozhou shape. Notoriously difficult to date, this one is somewhere in the 70s.

Can anyone confirm the authenticity of the DaHongPao Chaozhou clay from BitterLeafTeas? It doesn't seem to match the descriptions on this thread. It is dark red (supposedly from aging) rather than orangey red. I'm not sure if it's true Chaozhou clay that has been aged, or clay from another source, or mixed/doped.

I'm curious if it would be a good choice for a modern Chaozhou pot for dan cong.
