F1 hongni shuiping?

by jayinhk » Jan 17th 17 12:17 pm

Got this teapot for a good price--the lid is missing, but I tried it out with a lid from another hongni shuiping and it made decent work of some Wuyicha. I'm not sure if this is a real F1 pot or a remake, but it does make good tea and the price was right:

Nice, I got it from a dealer in Japan at a good price. :) Thanks kyarazen!

The handle and spout are all in a line; my 80ml pot from the late 80s/early 90s doesn't have that quality of construction. It seems to be lower fired than the newer pot. It made amazing shuixian this morning!
