chaozhou versatility

by yalokinh » Feb 24th, '13, 23:33

How versatile are chaozhou teapots?
Besides dan cong, is there anything else you could use it for?
Im planning on getting a couple in the next week or so.
I decided to get chaozhou over yixing due to difficulty of finding good yixin online and pricing. And also because i like mostly dan congs lol.
Does anyone have any info or links to chaozhou tea kettles?

I bought an 80ml pot from Imen. I'm real happy with it.

I think they would be very appropriate for roasted tieguanyin or for wuyi yancha.

very similar/identical? looking kettle at chawang, with a couple less nice bases to choose from, available at chawangteashop if $175-245 for a set is a little too much.

That tall base at teahabit looks like it would be the best out of bunch though.

The question is really whether you would like a nicer, noticeably taller base, or an extra set of kettle and base in case something breaks or you want two brew stations.
For $225.50 you could buy the two red clay kettles, and the two bases, shipping inc. at chawang.

Happy tea shopping :mrgreen:

Going to have to save up for those, very nice though and would be fun to get a few friends around it.
Thanks!

Are you looking for a kettle, or for a teapot? I know you mentioned kettle in your first post, but you also said teapot.

The things in the previous post are for boiling water with charcoal, not for brewing tea.
