Nice jars. Are they double-lidded?

Edited to ask: What is the capacity for these jars?

How much would they cost, if you sold them online?

How good is the seal, are they suitable for long term aging, or better for daily use tea?

Can you post photos of the insides of the lid, and jar tops ?

we use a mold to make the jars.

and the yixing clay jar only use the common zi ni, not the best clay like the teapot we made.

and we can't make this use good or other clay. because the good clay is very few, so we don't wast good clay to make a jar.

Moderator edit: Per guidelines under Teaware Artisans, ONE topic per artisan member. This is to be fair to all artisans.

Therefore, I have quoted all posts under the second topic created by Finddream2020/Chen, and they appear here. I did this as a courtesy to the posters who replied.

Thanks for your cooperation and understanding,
Chip

This special bowl had to be large enough to accommodate the implements and actions of tea brewing, yet small enough to be held comfortably in the hands for drinking. The term for this versatile piece of equipment was simply chawan tea bowl.
Technically, because of its small size –usually no more than 4 inches across– the term should be gaibei (covered cup) but since he traditional vessel for tea drinking had always been some form of bowl, “gaiwan” was adopted.

Because of its elegance, functionality and ease of use (after a little practice, of course), the gaiwan has long been recognized in China as the universal tool of tea preparation… in the teahouse, at home or in the field. The gaiwan’s universal practicality, superior control and versatility through all families and styles of tea make it the perfect vessel in which to explore the widest range of the world’s teas.

The GaiWan is very useful.
1. The saucer can avoid people getting scald from the hot water.
2. You don't need to move the cover, just move a half. So you will not eat the leaf but drink the tea.

Now our workshop has made these Yixing Gaiwans with Perfect clay. See the pictures below.

Do the wider shaped gaiwans pour well, or are they meant for drinking?

Thanks!

I think he is asking if they are meant for pouring into a cup, or for drinking directly from the bowl? (Old style or "grandpa" style drinking directly from the gaiwan instead of pouring into a cup). I would guess they are good for either.

Chen I continue to visit your site, I feel another purchase is imminent but can never make my mind up and have now wasted my Father's day discount coupon.

One thing that occasionally I find frustrating is that not all of the teapots identify the size.

Model: head of lung 001
Model: last of lung001
Model: leyun001
Model: paozun001
Model: xishi001

Perhaps you could update the website to include the sizes?
