I couldn't figure out how to attach pics, so I posted on a Post Image... postimg.org/gallery/2rbdzup3g/]]>
Approximating 3.5 cm high from the mouth rim
Approximating 6.5 high from the lid
Marked as Hui Mengchen Zhi on the base only.
Based on the mark as Hui Mengchen Zhi. May I know the probable dating?
How can I post the images here?
I am unsure of the clay used fr this tea pot & what tea may suit the pot best? I would like to glean as much information about this little pot as i can and hope that perhaps a few of you here might be able to help me with that?
Before I dedicate this tea pot to one particular tea i will sample many and find which i will prefer to drink providing the tea will suit the pot .
edit. I cannot seem to post pictures here . They are perhaps not allowed? I use photobucket for uploads?]]>
Well, I actually can't even figure out how to post up pictures but on jas-etea.com, it's the Ben Shan Green Clay Xi Shi teapot.]]>
The pot itself. It is pictured against the lid of its case:

Any and all help greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
At the local teashop and at various places online I've seen plenty of teaware made from (supposedly) Yixing clay, including cups, strainers, waste bowls, cha hai, etc. some of which are lined with porcelain on the inside, some of which are not. My understanding is that teapots made from this clay should be used with only one kind of tea to avoid general grossness down the road, so does this rule also apply to other unglazed Yixing teaware? If all Yixing teaware accumulates layers of seasoning in the same way as the teapots, then is there a way to un-season teaware without making everything that passes through it taste like detergent? Better yet, is there a quick and easy way to prevent the buildup of seasoning in the first place? I ask because a strainer of similar style to this one:

caught my eye at the local tea shop, but I don't want to have to submerge it in pot of boiling water on the stove for an hour to get it clean every time I use it to filter three or four steeping's worth of tea.
If anyone can shed any light on this, that'd be much appreciated.]]>
I´m glad to find this forum, although its hard to find serious informations on the net. The most informations I´ve found are connected with comercial intentions. On this way, I bought a ixing pot from a serious craftsman of "yunann". As I the pot arrived, I realized that this peace was glazed, which affected the exchange of oxid between the inner tea-brew and the air outside.
My question is: Does anyone know a technic to "break" this glazed surface?? Or is there any special use for glazed pot´s??
It would be very kind, anybody knows a answer and shares his experience with me.
Thanks for reading,
till next time...
I came across this shuiping teapot. It has small words 'zhong guo yi xing' perpendicular to the base of the handle.
There are no marks at the bottom.
There are no marks at the inside lid.
There is no filter in the inside of the teapot.
However right inside the teapot, on the floor, is an embossed picture of Chairman Mao.
May I know if you have come across such teapots yourself?]]>
I understand that they may or may not give to us dealers' price but at least there is no question about the pots being genuine.
Can anyone give to us (I am organizing a group event) some tips please?]]>
