i'm the most flexible with all these pots as any good tea goes. currently using them more for catalytic purposes than to serve an absorb-tive role.

the pear skin sees the most usage right now, a nice dose of taiwanese teas, TKY, chawang, even some half aged gushu pu-erh. the patina's coming up and.. just so nice :P in comparison with another new piece

the zini drinks mostly yancha, roasted dancong, particularly with yancha it deepens the tea and extends the "rocky yancha note".

the zhuni's currently making it rounds with sheng gushu pu-er of all ages, even with green tea/yellow tea

Here's my version of a side by side :)
One pot has been drinking a mishmash of roasted oolongs (Taiwan, yancha, tgy).

The pear skin is truly terrific. For those interested, mr. Xu Sihai owns a teapot museum in Shanghai, he shows it in this program here -- http://tv.cntv.cn/video/C10352/6c387e1c ... 9d6190350f

New pot rescued from the back of a dusty shelf in a Flushing shop. The older shop owner and his wife thought it was pretty funny that an American wanted to buy such a small pot. I asked if they had more similar ones to sell, but no such luck. Clay is a bit darker in real life. I'm not sure of the age, but if anyone wants to venture a guess, please do! No chop inside lid.

+1.

I leave the identification of the clay to people more experienced than me.
What I can say is that this teapot seems to me a bit underfired. I may be wrong, at least I hope for you. Usually, from my past experiences, underfired teapots are not so good.

As I mentioned, the clay is darker in real life than in the photos. Just too lazy to correct the color in editing. That might be why it could look under fired.

I deduced this, from how the light is reflected, by the teapot's surface, in the first and second picture. I may be wrong. :)
