I would like to sell those 2 teapots in order to reinvest in other teapot :
(for trade see end of the post)
1) Yixing Factory 1 Hexagon Teapot - hongni -approx 85ml - post 1987
(from chawang shop)
I have not been able to use it a lot, didn't find a perfect tea match and found the pour was quite slow (+/- 15 sec). But I guess that being factory 1 teapot the clay is nice.
150$ + shipping
2) Kyusu Hiragata Tokoname Yaki - by Shukei - Sekki clay (?) - approx 180ml
I wanted to love it, but this kyusu doesn't do well with my tetsubin, while I have a banko yaki and another tokoname yaki that does very well with it. It is very sad because this teapot is superb, very nice to use, craftmanship is great. Used less than 10 times with good quality sencha only. Did a last try today with my electric kettle, it performs very well but thrill is gone I guess and I don't need too many kyusu.
160$ + shipping
I would be fine with the trade of one of those teapots with a red clay shudei tokonome yaki kyusu/hohin/shiboridashi, I never used this kind of clay and wish to give it a try (Yamada Sou, Fugetsu...)
BTW it is hard to post pictures on teachat, feel free to contact me for more pictures or more info about the teapots.
Tea or pot doesn't float your boat? Find it a new home here.
