Yes, just point at the first photo of the piece you want information, a short description pops open.

:lol: It was a toss up between the one I purchased and this one, almost twins, now 3000 miles seperated.

Of course, you have managed to make yours look like greener grass on the other side of the fence! :mrgreen:

Just a quick note from Korea. I will return 16 May and will update the link after that. I have more things I will be adding and have also found a couple of more potters to work with.

The Hadong Tea Festival was great. This is the premier tea festival in Korea featuring the best green teas and Balhyocha, the oxidized and fermented Korean 'black' tea. Some call this 'yellow tea' but this is a fermented tea left to age for severl months. The area where this tea is grown is spectacular. Great natural beauty with wonderful Buddhist temples in the mountains and excellent food, much of it wild picked in the hills. Koreans are very health conscious and like purity in their teas as well as food.

As I mentioned in another post, teapots that are more traditionally made sell for about $150 and up. Potters that are creative and more well know are double or triple that like Park Bu Won, an older potter whose work I really like. The really famous potters can sell their work for thousands of dollars. The market in Korea is avid for their pottery. The respect given to potters is like that of Japan and prices reflect this appreciation.

Thanks TO. Korea is too oft overlooked in many respects, which is ironic and unfortunate!

NEW UPDATED TEAWARE. I have added several new things from Seong il, once again. Teapots, cups, water coolers, tea tray, and, tea caddies. Tea caddies are made with Onggi clay which are traditionally used to store food and water. These should make excellent tea caddies and hold about 50g of green tea and maybe more if you're tea is rolled like many Taiwan oolongs. Please have a look. http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/458415/2 ... l?h=4e6f7d

Don't forget to mouse over the 1st photo of each item for information and pricing.

Very nice selection. Love the blue pot. It's really a shame that my spring tea budget is already nearly gone... :roll:

Could I recommend putting the already sold items into a separate folder? I feel peeved every time I see an item I want to buy only to find that it's already gone. :cry:

How about a bank loan? :D

I also love the blue pot. It is much better than the photos. Thanks for the comment.
