Are you calling some of these "tuition fee teapots" because they were misrepresented, overpriced or because you consider them fake? Thanks.

Some were sold to me as zhuni which I later learned that they were not, some were meant to be made by artists and hence very expensive etc

Thanks for clarifying. I asked because some of them seem like decent functional teapots. But I'm far from expert on this.

I am a complete novice at Yixing but rather too enthusiastic about collecting hence mistakes have been made too frequently :oops:

Most of these are far better than my worst tuition teapot, a shoe polish pot from an online vendor. I should have known better! :oops: I managed a return to a very unhappy vendor who insisted the pot was good.
