My humble Yixing pots (with US$0.25 for size reference):

I use the pot above only for high quality Dan Chong

Image

For Sheng (raw) Pu-erh only (about 4-5 mini gongfu cups)

Image

For lightly fermented oolong (about 4 mini gongfu cups)

Image

For heavily fermented dark oolong (4 mini gongfu cups)

To make wishes with the genie inside. I haven't decided what this pot is for. I just got it a few weeks ago in Guangzhou for RMB 100. A decent quality with very good pour ("zhu suei") for the price. Still unseasoned as of to date.

My favorite one that is rarely used. A big one, for some serious pu-erh drinking with friends and family.

I need to resort my teas and take more pictures.
I also need to update my "catalogue" of what I have (which is kind of frightening, really).

And even more:
I need to drink more tea.
