That last one looks more like hongni or zhuni to me, which would make me think it is fake. :( Then again I am new to all t
his. Any vets out there today?

If you told me it was fake I wouldn't disagree with you for one second. I will say that it looks a little redder in the picture, but I am really curious as to what the writing on it means. That could shed some light on what/where it really came from.

Thanks for the thoughts!

It's clearly been lacquered or painted. The outside texture probably feels like it's had a coating sprayed on, right? Very typical of ultra-cheap pots. Obviously, you didn't spend much on it, but I'd avoid consuming any hot liquid out of it.

By the way, the chop on the bottom is a standard 4 character seal (yixing zhongguo)

Thanks wyardley. I would agree that the texture is slightly glossy. Thats kind of scary that you would actually suggest against using it. :shock: Good thing you told me before I actually started using it much.

A tiny 内紫外红 pot. Lid fit/knob is awful, handle shape is strange, but I like the zini clay inside. 40-50ml.

Qing Hui Ni is one of the sub category of Zini. Less common. As expensive/rare as modern Zhuni. This retains heat very very well. Brings out the flavor and smoothness. Good to brew aged tea.
Decided to dedicate for: Raw Pu-erh (15 years above)


I thought QHN was greyish; in fact, qing hui means graphite colour. I also read somewhere that nowadays this clay is made by adding other clay to duan ni clay, in order to reach the desired effect since real QHN pots are worth thousands. Another clay that has been mined out in the existing mines.

Your pot looks to me a common Qing Shui Ni.

Nope not from Singapore. The handle is almost a full circle, which to me is unusual.

P.S.: pm-ed you as well!
