Postby Ambrose » Jun 19th, '13, 11:44

Hi everyone up for grabs are some great pots from my collection. I hope that they can go to new homes to be used and loved as they should be. Additional pictures upon request, I ship international :)

Larger pics here http://goo.gl/l6OGE


Image

Year: 1970s-1980's - I lean towards this being a late 70's due to the craftsmanship and the clay quality
Clay: Zhuni
Filter Style: single hole
Size: 58ml
Usage: I was using this for aromatic yancha but can be used for any tea that suites the size/shape
Clay Character: Sweeter thicker water, magnifies the flavors and aromas
Price: $249 + ship SOLD

Image

Year: 1970's - I was told it was possibly factory 1 one but I am unsure
Clay: Hong Ni - Thick walls - excellent craftsmanship
Filter Style: Single Hole

Clay Character: Retains heat very well, can extract flavors you may have not notice before, retains all the flavor tones, especially the high tones, even more so than a lot of zhuni pots Ive had
Price: $159+ ship SOLD

Image

Year: 1980's
Clay: Nan Gao Tu Zhuni - Super fine tender zhuni mixed with pure zisha
Filter Style: Single Hole

Image

Image

Year: Modern
Clay: Taiwanese High Iron Clay Reduction Fired
Filter Style: multi flat hole
Size: 180ml
Usage: Mostly Gaoshan, fresh and oxidized- Once the gaoshan expands the pot seems much smaller and lets the leaves fully expand very nicely. Works well with all teas!
Clay Character: Makes a very deeply smooth creamy brew, brings up the fruity tones, increases the aftertaste in the throat. Recommended for those that enjoy the deeper tones of any tea.
Price: $99 + ship SOLD

Year: Modern
Clay: Taiwanese Volcanic Clay
Filter Style: Multi hole ball filter

Price: $99 shipped SOLD

I like the Taiwanese volcanic clay pot...looks like a great little pot, specifically if it does what you mentioned to the water/tea poured from it. Unfortunately, after making a few recent purchases, I can't buy anymore teaware right now or I'll be sleeping alone in the backyard. :D
