I am so glad that you agree Tim that this is great Hong Ni because I personally believe that sample tea has some of the best Hong Ni for the price of anywhere on the Internet (that is if you don't mind the medium fired which is the usual for their Hong Ni selections) and especially considering I have heard others say they don't like it very much because it smells funny (which is gone after one boiling session by the way). Some of the best Hong Ni I've found (lots of rounding while still maintaining a large percentage of aroma). I've bought about 6 Hong Ni's from them and Mao Mei Zhen seems to have the best craftsmanship of the Shui Ping series!

A good yixing tea caddy is hard to find, and most of them have no lids.
