Bryan_drinks_tea WANTED: yixing pot for taiwan roast oolong

by bryan_drinks_tea » Jan 4th, '11, 17:28

Hello Tea Peoples,

I'm moving into deeper territory with my oolongs, and I feel the need to acquire a smallish yixing for Taiwan Roasted Oolongs. I'm not too partial as long as it's not painted on. 90-120ml is preferable, but not required.

Please contact soon. Thank you.

Sorry, I have nothing suitable in that price range at the moment. You might try contacting http://www.luhyutea.com/. They should be able to set you up with something nice.

Well, I'm not a vendor, just someone thinking about thinning out his collection. :wink:

I just found a 85ml hong ni shui ping for pretty cheap- unfortunately it is painted on though. I also have a gorgeous 120-130ml Taiwanese black clay pot that would be perfect for roasted Taiwanese tea. I paid $125 for it, and I wouldn't want to lose any money on selling it. Do you have any interest in a 110ml kyusu shaped Yixing pot? I think it would do quite well with roasted Taiwanese tea. I could let that go within your price range probably.

I might have something usable for you, if you want. I have too many pots as it is -- a simple shuiping, black, unused.

Ting,

Thanks for the offering, but I'll pass. The Kyusu shape is interesting.

Marshaln, could you please send pictures of the shuiping? also, what size is it?


Thanks all,

Bryan

A pretty normal one -- I don't have a measuring device. I'll PM you with the picture once I take a few
