Di Cao Qing batches.

by SmallSmallTea » Sep 11th 20 4:23 am

Good day folks.

Recently i am trying to look for "high performance" Di Cao Qing teapots and was introduced to private order ones that were earlier brought in to Malaysia.

Noticed that there are various batches, in terms of clay and workmanship quality. Was wondering if anyone here has the expertise or experience on this?

Hoping that i will be able to hunt down something to brew an excellent cup of vintage Liu Bao, fingers crossed.

Can't really help sorry but if you could post some pics I'll let you know if the clay is good. No pics no advice, unfortunately.

I think Essenceoftea used to sell them. Those private order di cao qing has been harder to find these past year or two. Good luck hunting :lol:

Noted, will hopefully be able to snap and share some clear photos. In fact i stumbled upon two variation.

Meanwhile, am so captivated by one Di Cao Qing Duo Qiu, putting aside its price-tag.

I have two private order DiCaoQing pots from EssenceofTea that are great. However, I'm not certain if the pots you're referencing are the same. Do you have a link, pictures, prices?
