Advice On Teapot Appraisals

by Shaner » Dec 19th, '17, 09:28

Does anyone know of a way to learn more about a teapot? I’m not looking to sell it necessarily, I would just like more information on it. I can’t read Chinese characters.

On another note. Forgive my newbness, but I’m guessing that a low profile pot that is high fired should be paired with a red (black) tea or a roasted oolong right?

Hi Shaner,

There is no should when it comes to Yixing, each pot has its personality which comes from clay, age, thickness, firing, shape etc etc. try some tea in it and compare it against the same tea in a porcelain gaiwan. Mess around until you find a combo that you like!
