Oh wow that looks very similar to a Tiao Sha Zhu Ni I saw that was made by Zhu Dan, although, this one is almost double it's size and obviously is pure Zhu Ni. Beautiful pot yet again Tim!TIM wrote:needaTEAcher wrote:I was just looking through a book about older zisha with a huge zhuni pot from the qing dynasty.

"Isinskoy Zhu Hu - Chiu Li Zhu Sha. This subspecies Zhu Ni, which in very small amounts are found in the bottom of the mountain mines Vyrobotok Ju Lee. Because of the extremely high content of iron, tea has a dark, almost black color and metallic luster, and natural bright red blotches which gives a unique color contrast and pleasant to look at."
Any ideas about this particular clay?
Note: Sorry for the accompanying text, I had to use Google translate since it was a Russian blog.
Nicely made, poured very fast, didn't alter the flavor much, a touch smoother, retained the highs. Treated me very well and was a fantastic first pot for all teas for me.Exempt wrote:What did you think of it?Ambrose wrote:I had one of those YS pots
Yes I also saw that but YS sells them for less than $100 bucks as opposed to the Russian blog. Anyway here's the link.Drax wrote:Bagua, that pot kind of reminds me of this type of pot from YS -- the pots are redder than the pictures show, though not quite as red as the one you have pictured.
I can't say much beyond that vague similarity.
