Good to keep you here. Hopefully you will find time to give us more insight to the workings of a Yixing potter.

Thank you very much! It's very kind of you to say that. :)
I will provide some pics as you mentioned recently, but right now I'm a little busy. I will PM you if I post these pics! :D

Do you still have stocks of the non-green Duanni ?

I am keen to explore further the different properties of different yixing clays and am considering buying at least one more pot from you - maybe 2 or even 3.
The only trouble is I don't want to pay wholly hand made prices and the models currently exhibited on your site are alittle larger than the size that I would like.

My apologies in advance if I am out of order but I have started a thread to see if anyone else would be interested in a smaller sized pot from Shouzhen http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=14392

Please feel free to comment on any errors that I may have made in my suppositions :oops:

I'm sorry that I haven't been Teachat for a long while, and I saw your reply just now.

Does non-green duanni means yellow duanni? I have all kinds of yuankuang duanni right now,and "yuankuang" means natural clay.

The question is, waht size and which type do you want? :D

I'm sorry that I was busy recently and I came back to Teachat just now.

Yes, there are duanni pots on the website.

They are guayu, teapot-exquisite Flower, and I will add new products these days. You can search by these names, because it is not suitable for me to post links to my website. :D

In addition, you can order a pot in duanni if you like.

I had been hoping that perhaps your father could introduce some new smaller models - hence the reason why I started this thread

http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=14392

This shows (and mirrors many comments elsewhere in TeaChat) that favoured styles are

Fang Gu
Duo Qiu
Shi Pao
Shui Pin

In the absence of these appearing in the near time, I have answered your PM in detail (but I forgot to mention Fang Gu)

If this could be made in Qing Hui Ni or Duan Ni it would probably go to the top of my list.

The points that I made in response to your PM, but more importantly the answers that you give, may be of interest to many more teachatters. Perhaps you would consider sharing that information, or some of it, on this thread.

You mention

wow, several types :shock:
I am a novice at trying to understand Zisha Clays :(

I have read in various sources that Duanni can be good for certain types of tea because it softens them and eases out harshness.

one clay called 'Tiao Sha Duan Ni' is quoted as
Because the clay is tender, this Yixing teapot will also be good for black tea or heavily fermented and raosted oolong tea like Wu Yi oolong tea or traditional Anxi oolong teas.

http://www.jingteashop.com/pd-jing-tea-shop-yixing-teapot-hl.cfm

another called 'Zhi Ma Duan Ni'
Because the Zhi Sha is a tender Zhi Ma Duan Ni, this Yixing teapot may also be used for White tea and especially Bai Mu Dan, Puerh tea, and black tea.

http://www.jingteashop.com/pd-jing-tea-shop-yixing-teapot---zhi-ma-duan-ni-xiao-pin.cfm

another called 'Lao Duan Ni'
but the photo shows a glossier less grainy texture :roll:
Old Duan Ni clay comes from the Yellow Dragon mountain mine in Yixing county of Jiangsu province. It brews tea that is soft, smooth, and great tasting. Over time brewing tea gives the teapot a highly pleasing bright color. This type of clay is extremely rare. It produces excellent tasting tea and is highly acclaimed.

Mining area: Yellow Dragon mountain of Yixing city
Kiln temperature: approx. 950 C.
Contraction: approx. 50%-60%.

Appropriate for brewing: fresh Oolong teas (light roasted types) are extremely well-suited, Tie Guan Yin (medium roasted or highly roasted types), various kinds of Pu-erh.

http://www.yunnansourcing.com/store/product.php?id_product=869

another quotes Sesame Duanni as being Zhi Ma Duanni but again the photo shows a much glossier looking finish
"Sesame" Duan Ni clay is a special Duan Ni clay type, fired at a high temperature of 1200C. .............
Clay Type:Zhi Ma (Sesame) Duan Ni clay

http://www.yunnansourcing.com/store/product.php?id_product=681

finally
Burnt DuanNi
This pot is made from burnt "Old Dragon Kiln" style fired Duan Ni clay. The process involves a firing time of three days and three nights, this is a special high-temperature process which creates a subtle raised clay effect and a high porous teapot which seasons well with use........... ..........

Appropriate for brewing: fresh Oolong teas (light roasted types) are extremely well-suited, Tie Guan Yin (medium roasted or highly roasted types), various kinds of Pu-erh.

http://www.yunnansourcing.com/store/product.php?id_product=1230

So if you say you have several types of Duan Ni what are their different properties, how will I know which one to ask for in my order?

Hello Miss Chen/ Hello everybody,

I am new to the chat and I've been reading many posts about pots and other stuff. I am very happy to have found this forum. Many knowledgeable people in teachat.
Anyway, I am not sure if this is the right post to ask you about your products, I hope it is. If not, anyone, feel free to let me know please.

Chen, regarding the quality of your clays. What types do you have available at the moment and which is the best in terms of quality in your opinion?

Is the quality of your semi-hand made and completely hand-made pots the same?

Regarding your available clays which one do you recommend for young/aged sheng and shou puerh ? I think I read in some thread ( I 've been reading so many posts already that I am not sure in which one) that your 'gold sand' di cao qing was your best clay for these types of teas, correct?

Hi, thank you so much to post here. :D

We have almost every clays except deep green clay. Di cao qing is the clay from the bottom of Huang Long Shan Mountain.

Yes, the semi-handmade teapots have the same quality with all-by-hand-made teapots.

I recommend duan ni clay and di cao qing for puerh tea. : ) I also think zhu ni is best for oolong tea.
