Some 90ies Yixing for sale

by Bok » Mar 15th, '18, 05:42

Going through my storage of neglected stash of teapots and those following did not make it into the rotation.

All unused as they they were given to me rather than that I bought them. Not used by me as I just have too many other pots I preferred to use (sound familiar?).

First one and in my opinion the nicest of the lot: According to public opinion here on the forum back in the days, it is an after 90ies (厂外定制)Outside factory custom made pot.
Bare with me for capacity, I need to check that and wil update the listing.

Craftsmanship is quite nice and clay seems to be as well.

Second pot is the smallest I ever had, 60ml. Consenus had it around 90ies. High fired and it has a nice ring to it!

Caveat: This pot did not fare well in my test brewing with high mountain oolong! I found it had muting effect.
This might be down to being un-seasoned, some clays seem to need longer raising time, before they perform well. I did not have the patience and the handle is uncomfortably small for my rather large paws… Otherwise it might be a good fit for young sheng or other teas which benefit from a little muting. I do not drink those, so this pot is not useful for me…

Third one is another likely 90ies or later: this one imitating pre-1960s nan meng chen pot, as deducted by our local Yixing sage, Steanze :mrgreen:
I have to measure capacity, but it is only a bit larger than the second pot, so an educated guess would put it somewhere in the 70-80ml range. TBC

It is well made nonetheless and has quite a nice shape.
