SOLD - William: OFFER - F1 Zini SP, late 70s / early 80s.

by William » Mar 28th 17 7:48 pm

Hello folks,

I would like to sell this unused SP Factory 1, 50/55 ml, single hole, made during the green label period (that is 1977 / 1982); the small stamp inside the lid is illegible.

Pure Zini clay; I must say such a lovely material. Dense, good thermal properties (e.g. the teapot remains hot for long), good pour and lid fit. Perfectly fired as all the F1 teapots from this era. The clay has a nice touch of porosity; it doesn't kill flavors or aromatics, just a gentle touch.

I paired the ones I am currently using (made of the same clay and size) with deep roasted oolong (e.g. the typical high roasted TGY or SX will pair wonderfully), aged Pu Erh and aged Oolong, Chinese red teas with their typical malty flavor (another pair I really like), aged Liu Bao / Liu an.

$ 180 EMS included.
