I want this too... lol.

what size do you need? 50ml? 100ml? 150ml? etc?

There are a few vendors on ebay that are good, but most of ebay is bad. (look at my under $50 thread... which I need to update) but ebay is one of the few places with post under $ 80 shipped here is a very good one for the price I'm using it now and the clay is wonderful:

It's not fancy, but it *works* pours smooth etc.

I wish I could find the same pot in an 80ml size... (ANYONE??)

doh.. it occurs to me that the pot I linked to is good for aged puerh... not oolong as much, it's too porous and earthy... I think you want something smoother. (it's still a damn good pot, though)

(really oolong is nice in porcelain, on your budget something like this might make more sense...)

but if your heart is set on "yixing" I'll see what I can find.

This could be good, I've bought from them before... (though they seem to have just raised their prices!)

it is nowadays not that easy to find a good pot for 80$, especially when you don't live anywhere near Asia.

The second pot on this link (hong ni clay) would suit your needs.
