A little very simple SP, and this one is really water level and floats.
Clay: very smooth Zi ni (looks like a little more reddish Qing shui ni than previous teapot maybe because of lower temp firing), medium fired.
Size: 70 ml, single hole.
Age/Year: tricky but I'd say late 70's fashion (because of clay and craftmanship) and Factory-1. Or a fake, of course.
Walls: not really thick, not clearly thin...
Pour: this one's a little dripper.
Tea Pairing: wulong. High fired more expensive yancha for this one.
Info : same classic and nice shape, very quickly seasoning clay (despite being totally cleaned up), good craftmanship except for the lid fit which seems to be quite common for pots of that era (or fake mimicking this era, of course). Single to dual drinking.
If anyone has a clue for the lid seal, I'll be glad. I think it reads 妹春 which I translate as mèi chūn but that gives me no info...
