Because of the enormous problem that tea drinkers have in trying to choose well made Yixing teapots with unadulterated clays online, I will be showcasing some specially commissioned teapots from a workshop in Yixing by someone here in Thailand. All the teapots have good clays, and are picked for their classic shapes, workmanship, and value. All are private label seals in Thai, with year of manufacture. Workshop seal is inside the lid. All have proved to be good brewing vessels for various teas by myself and fellow tea drinkers here in Bangkok. The prices will be very competitive for entry level, half-handmade teapots. The aesthetics should also be immediately be apparent. Clays will be modern zhuni from Zhao Zhuang Mountain, zi ni, and a special mix of zi ni and duanni which creates an interesting visual. These will be available in limited quantity. They are all special orders and will not be available for ordering again when they are sold out. Sizes are for those that favor smaller teapots.
The teapots are gas fired twice at about 1200C. The clay particles are sized through a #60 sieve. These were made in 2012 and 2013.

Photo 2a shows the lid off kilter. Lid slipped when photographed.
Both are perfect. Lids fit well.
